KIPP Voyage Academy for Girls opened in Fall 2009 and is located in Northeast Houston. KIPP Voyage empowers young women to be self-respecting independent thinkers with the academic character and social skills necessary to thrive in and graduate from the four-year college of their choice. Young women are encouraged to contribute meaningfully to their community and the world. Students and their families commit to upholding school values and coming ready to learn every day.
Offering athletics in schools is essential for fostering physical health and well-being among students, promoting an active lifestyle from an early age. Beyond fitness, sports teach valuable life skills such as teamwork, discipline, and perseverance, shaping well-rounded individuals prepared for challenges. We offer basketball, cheerleading, soccer, track, and volleyball.
At KIPP Voyage Academy for Girls, students will learn at high levels through the development of rigorous assignments, meaningful assessment tools, and continuous support and guidance. In time, the climb up the mountain will become increasingly complex, yet more attainable, through quality questioning and frequent feedback to actualize our belief that all students WILL learn.
All students receive core instruction in English Language Arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and writing. Desired student outcomes are created by using the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). All of our eighth graders are immersed in Algebra I, allowing them to gain high school credit before entering high school. Additionally, data-driven instruction is a crucial lever for our classrooms. We offer intervention (tutorials) during the school day to ensure all students have equal access. Data is reviewed every six to nine weeks to determine the best placement for students to receive an intervention.
Extracurriculars at Voyage are embedded into the school day. All students receive digital media, art, and dance during the first semester. After the first semester, students can choose one focus for the second semester. This approach allows all KIPPsters to learn about all extracurriculars while supporting their desires, all in one school year.
