KIPP DC Connect Academy
"Connect Academy strives to provide children with a supportive, collaborative, and fun learning environment to inspire future academic success. Our teachers see each of their students as unique individuals, and work to connect with them in ways that motivate them personally."
Amy Drake, Principal, KIPP DC Connect Academy
Connect Academy uses the Tools of the Mind curriculum to develop executive function, promote social-emotional learning, and grow early literacy and math skills.
Teachers and families partner to ensure each student’s individual needs are met—setting a strong foundation for their educational journey.
Play-based learning allows students to express themselves, explore new concepts, and work together with their classmates.
Connect Academy hosts a number of events to engage families and the community. Past events have included: cheerleading, basketball, international night, parenting classes, ballet performances, and more. We partner with the Springboard for before and aftercare at all three schools at the Webb Campus.
