Throughout high school, all students who complete 8th grade with KIPP DC receive support and assistance in the sometimes difficult transition to college and career. This support includes college selection, financial aid assistance, ACT preparation, strategic goal setting, and pre-college workshops for students and their families.
The High School Decision Process
During KIPPsters 8th grade year, members of the KTC Team work with families to help them determine which high school is best for their child. Across the District of Columbia, all students seeking to attend a public charter high school or a selective D.C. public school must apply through the My School DC lottery. KIPP DC 8th graders receive lottery preference at KIPP DC College Preparatory—a Tier 1 high school.
