KIPP Austin Collegiate supports our students on their final climb up the mountain to college. Our academic program enables students to develop and practice intellectual habits, build academic skills and cultivate character traits necessary to thrive in and graduate from four-year colleges and universities. At KIPP Austin Collegiate, students learn to take responsibility for positively affecting their communities and shaping their own future.

KIPP Austin Collegiate offers rigorous academic courses, an advisory program and competitive electives. Specific programming includes AP course offerings, college-ready Seminars, ACT courses, grade-level homerooms, and competitive dance, soccer, basketball, volleyball, flag football, cross country, and band.

In addition, we also offer experiences outside of the classroom through end of year field lessons, which are annual off-campus opportunities for our students to visit college campuses and continue to build cultural capital. Proceed and be bold.

Most recently, she served five years as a ninth grade assistant principal and supported all English teachers. Prior to joining KIPP Texas, Ms. Lopez taught multiple subjects at a private all-male high school in New Orleans.
