Celebrating 15 years of KIPP Chicago working hand-in-hand with all of Chicago.

Since our founding, KIPP Chicago has held collaboration and partnership as central values to realizing our commitment to the students and communities in which we operate. Our efforts to build a commitment of leadership across all stakeholder groups has resulted in ever improving academic performance of KIPP students while strengthening families and building community. It is nothing short of remarkable what a diverse group of people can accomplish together.  Parents and teachers, charter public schools and district-run schools, volunteers and donors have accomplished much more together than what is possible by any single group alone. We have harnessed the power of partnership in service of the individual student, effecting true change.

Since starting with a single classroom of 5th grade students in 2003, KIPP Chicago has grown to serving more than 2,400 student across 7 campuses in North Lawndale, Austin, Englewood, and West Humboldt Park, and supports over 1,200 alumni in high school and college. Our growth has been accompanied by increasingly strong results, as KIPP Chicago is the leading K-8 charter network in Chicago. Over the next five years, we aspire to increase our impact on families and communities by growing to educate 4,000 students and support more than 2,000 alumni annually.

For 15 years KIPP Chicago has worked relentlessly to provide our students on the South and West Sides the quality, high quality, rigorous, college preparatory schools they deserve. We are beyond grateful for our dedicated team, and recognize that we could not accomplish this on our own.

On November 15th we will come together to acknowledge the students, teachers, staff  volunteers, funders, and civic leaders who have helped make our growth and impact possible. KIPP Together is both a look back and realization of what we have accomplished, and a launching pad for our next chapter as we continue to support the whole child and build a stronger Chicago.
