KIPP Courage College Prep opened at Landrum Middle School in July of 2012 and is part of the SKY Partnership with Spring Branch Independent School District and YES Prep Public Schools. At KIPP Courage we learn the value of hard work by engaging in a rigorous curriculum of academics, arts, and athletics. KIPP Courage builds self-mastery in our students by creating collaborative, relationship-focused small groups that value the individual and his or her contribution to the community. As a result of this work, our KIPPsters enter high school with the courage that will carry them to and through college and life.
