The mission of KIPP Philadelphia Charter School is to develop the character, knowledge, and skills of our students so they will succeed in top-quality high schools, college, and the competitive world beyond.

Points Of Pride

KIPP provides rigorous academics with a strong focus on a well-rounded education including character building and enrichment opportunities. With a longer school day (7:40AM - 3:30PM), students have an intervention block where they receive additional supports in reading and math. Beyond the academics, we have exciting field lessons, end of year trips, and student clubs.
