Each day, thousands of students arrive to school at KIPP DC ready to learn and grow. Yet thousands more across the District of  Columbia have limited access to quality educational options—and it doesn’t have to be that way.

We aspire to improve life outcomes for the next generation of Washingtonians by equipping students and alumni with the knowledge, skills, and mindsets to become thoughtful, intentional citizens and lead successful lives full of choice and opportunity.

KIPP DC educates and supports students in the District of Columbia who have limited access to quality educational options. We approach our work with a set of core beliefs about how we can achieve our mission. We believe students are worthy of exceptionally talented and diverse teachers and leaders who will guide them through school, college, and careers. We believe we must partner with families to provide students an ecosystem of supports in order to optimize their educational experience. We believe students deserve a model school system that plays an important leadership role in D.C. and the national education community.
