The Impact of Your Gift

KIPP Through College & Career supports KIPP DC alumni with a comprehensive suite of programs focused on success in college and career. This program is fully funded through the generosity of KIPP DC donors.

  • Capital Teaching Residency

    We know that quality teachers are crucial influencers of student success. The nationally-recognized Capital Teaching Residency builds a pipeline of diverse talent for public schools in Washington, D.C. The recruitment, selection, training, and professional development of the participants in this program is supported by non-public funding sources.

  • Scholarships

    KIPP DC alumni are on track to graduate college at five times the District average. Through our match and persistence scholarship funds, we are able to ensure that financial barriers do not hold our alumni back from college graduation. Our scholarship fund is 100% supported through private donations.

  • Growth

    KIPP DC has a bold five-year growth plan. We aim to open new schools and grow to educate and support nearly 12,000 students and alumni each year. To build new facilities designed for 21st-century learning, we’ll rely on the generosity of foundations, corporations, and individual donors.
