At KIPP Poder Academy, we are dedicated to creating a positive learning environment with the rigorous college preparatory curriculum and character education necessary so that our students grow to be successful, confident leaders in their lives, their community, and the world.

In addition to our rigorous academic program, we offer a number of electives, including journalism, Mexican-American Studies, art, choir, and percussion ensemble. Students also venture outside the classroom once a quarter for field trips, which include visits to universities and museums.
