We believe that all students will learn and achieve at high levels when given the opportunity. Our mission is to help students develop the knowledge, skills, and character strengths they need to seize those opportunities. Great education transforms lives. Nearly 50% of our KIPP Houston 8th graders go on to graduate from college; comparatively, only 10% of Harris County’s low-income 8th graders have graduated from college.
There are 26 KIPP schools in Houston serving approximately 13,500 students climbing the mountain to and through college.
Tragically, the demand for a KIPP seat far outweighs the number of seats available, and 12,500 children sit on our waitlist. Read more about our commitment to Houston's children and communities here.
“This is a time when many of our KIPPsters, Big and Little, as well as their families are experiencing uncertainty and fear. As a child of immigrants, I stand with you.” Sehba Ali, Superintendent, KIPP Houston Public Schools
