KIPP Philosophers Academy
KIPP Philosophers Academy is a tuition-free public charter middle school that opened in summer 2012 in South Los Angeles. KIPP Philosophers Academy serves 154 fifth and sixth grade students, and will add one grade each year until we reach capacity in 2015 with no more than 500 students in fifth through eighth grade.
The mission of KIPP Philosophers Academy is to provide students with an excellent education rooted in the arts, humanities, and philosophy so they are able to develop their own success in high school, college, and beyond with the ultimate goal of taking their knowledge and putting it into practice to impact their communities in a long lasting and positive way.
KIPP Philosophers Academy’s values are grit, zest, grace, truth, and love.
In January, we will be fundraising to get each student at KIPP Philosophers Academy college t-shirts!
