At KIPP DC schools, students develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to become Washington DC’s next generation of leaders. Equipped with a KIPP DC education, our alumni are empowered to be successful in college, careers, and life. To achieve this, we ground ourselves in a commitment to excellence, equity, and justice.
In partnership with families, we approach each day with ambition, purpose, and an unwavering focus on what is best for all students.
At KIPP DC, we develop deep community partnerships that provide in-and out-of-school experiences for our students and resources to support student development. As a result, we’ve engaged in several community-based initiatives and work closely in partnership with community-based organizations, schools, and elected officials in DC.
Please contact director of advocacy, Vanessa Gerideau, if you want to learn more about involvement with KIPP DC and community events.
GEMS Recap – On March 4, we kicked off Women’s History Month by inviting young ladies and their families to join our annual GEMS summit at KIPP DC Legacy College Prep. It was one of our biggest turnouts, with nearly 100 students, families, staff, and close partners attending.
