KIPP Academy of Innovation

Be the Change. Innovate.

KIPP Academy of Innovation is a tuition-free public STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) charter middle school that opened in August 2014 in East Los Angeles.  KIPP Academy of Innovation currently serves 367 5th, 6th, and 7th grade students, and will add one grade each year until we reach capacity in 2017 with students in fifth through eighth grade.

The KIPP Academy of Innovation stems from one belief and one question. We believe that all children have an unalienable right to determine their own destiny.  At the center of this fundamental belief is the idea that all children deserve a high quality education that provides them with the freedom, knowledge, and courage to choose their path in college and beyond.  At KIPP Academy of Innovation, our students are 21st century leaders who confidently think outside the box, bravely remain ahead of the curve, and solve the problems of the world that don’t yet exist.

KIPP Academy of Innovation is part of the renowned national KIPP (Knowledge is Power Program) network of schools. The school is operated by KIPP LA Schools, a charter management organization. For the agendas and minutes from KIPP LA Schools public board meetings, please click here.
