Every student who graduates from a KIPP DC middle school will receive a KIPP Forward advisor and specialized support for the next 10 years. Support includes college selections, financial aid assistance, strategic goal setting, and pre-college workshops for students and their families.
The High School Decision Process
During KIPPsters’ 8th-grade year, the KIPP Forward team will work with families to help determine which high school is the best fit for their child. All students across the District of Columbia must apply through the My School DC lottery, if they seek to attend a public charter high school or selective DC public school. 8th graders at KIPP DC receive lottery preference at KIPP DC College Preparatory and KIPP DC Legacy College Preparatory.
