The mission of KIPP Philadelphia schools is to develop the character, knowledge and skills of our students so that they will succeed in college, giving them the freedom to shape their futures and positively affect their communities.

Points Of Pride

We combine rigorous academics with a strong focus on providing a well-rounded education. With school hours from 7:40 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., students have time for over three hours of literacy, 90 minutes of math and daily science/social studies. At the same time, we have a focus on character-building and enrichment opportunities like art and music. Students also have daily recess, and kindergarten students take a nap. By the end of kindergarten, over 90 percent of students are reading on grade level, with nearly three-quarters actually performing above grade level. Saturday morning sessions four times a year provide a chance for students, staff and families to come together for hands-on projects and performances.

Admissions Policy

Open to all students who live in Philadelphia. If there are more applications than available seats, a lottery will be held. The school’s enrollment policy gives priority to the following groups in this order: Parent is staff member or founder, Sibling attending; Sibling accepted offer, Lives in 19121 or 19132, Lives in Philadelphia
