KIPP Austin Collegiate

KIPP Austin Collegiate serves to support our students on their final climb up the mountain to college. Our academic program enables students to develop and practice intellectual habits, to build academic skills, and to cultivate character traits necessary to thrive in, and graduate from, four year colleges and universities. An enduring aspect of the education we provide at KIPP Austin Collegiate is that students will take responsibility for positively affecting their communities and shaping their own future. Proceed and be bold.

KIPP Austin Collegiate offers rigorous academic courses, an Advisory program, and competitive electives. Specific programming includes: AP course offerings; college-ready Seminars; ACT courses; grade-level homerooms; and competitive dance, soccer, basketball, volleyball, cross country and band. In addition, we also offer experiences outside of the classroom walls through End of Year Field Lessons, which are annual off-campus opportunities for our students to visit college campuses and continue to build cultural capital.
