At KIPP Generations Collegiate, we believe that education equips our students to lead choice-filled lives. We envision a generation of college-ready critical thinkers who demonstrate grit by persisting through academic challenge, empowerment by taking responsibility for their learning, and hope by giving back to family, community, commitments, and giving forward. Our team and family are committed to providing excellent instruction in every class every day. With AP for All, we will enroll every student in at least one AP class every year and students will take at least six AP courses before graduation.

Our school motto is: We Lift as We Climb. Our scholars and teammates embody this motto as we achieve great things and bring others along with us. At KGC, students develop their voice through student leadership opportunities, national and local organizations, and self-reflection and advocacy. Creating an equitable and inclusive environment that values the assets of the community we serve is a core part of our work at KGC.
