There are currently 224 KIPP schools serving nearly 100,000 students. Today, KIPP Memphis serves over 2,800 students in our seven schools in Memphis and almost 800 alumni on their journeys to and through college with our KIPP Through College Program.

WHAT WE DO & WHY IT MATTERS.

Preparing our students for successful and choice-filled lives of independence and impact drives the work of all KIPP school leaders, teachers, and staff. Nationally, KIPP alumni graduate from college at 4 times the national average, which is good, but not good enough. Our goal is for 75% of our alumni to graduate from college and be prepared to live a personally and financially satisfying life.
