KIPP Journey Collegiate is one half of the network’s first 1:1 (one primary school to one secondary school) feeder pattern, and it provides a new path for our KIPPsters who, once fully grown, will begin their journey in PreK-3 and continue through 12th grade, attending only two schools on one campus.

At KIPP Journey Collegiate, we journey forward with love. We believe in providing all students with a strong academic foundation that will prepare them for the world of the future. We understand the key to unlocking our limitless potential lies in fostering an environment where every member feels safe, loved, connected, heard and empowered to lead their own journey. Each day is an opportunity to learn and grow, and we work with purpose to develop our hearts and minds so that we are equipped with the knowledge and skills we need to create our own futures.
