KIPP DC LEAP Academy

ValuesAt LEAP Academy, we work hard to live these four values:
LEAP 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.
LEAP Academy hosts a number of events for families and the community. Past events have included: Chat and Chew academic presentations, movie screenings, healthy eating demonstrations, and more. We partner with the YMCA for before and aftercare at all three schools at the Benning Campus.
