KIPP 3D Academy was founded in 2001 and serves students from the Northside of Houston on their journey to and through college. The mission of KIPP 3D Academy is simple, yet powerful — to provide students with the knowledge, critical thinking skills, and character traits required to prepare them for the rigors of competitive high schools, colleges, and the world beyond. This mission, as well as the commitment to excellence made by each student, family, and faculty member, has empowered our students to reach farther than even their own expectations, proving each day that they can achieve their goals through desire, discipline, and dedication.
