Service. Excellence. Integrity. Passion. Courage. Leadership.
KIPP Charlotte is a free, open-enrollment, college preparatory public school serving almost 400 students in grades five through eight. KIPP Charlotte serves communities that are traditionally underserved and marginalized in education.
The mission of KIPP Charlotte is to prepare all of our students to excel in the nation’s finest high schools and colleges by cultivating the habits of mind, character skills, and knowledge necessary for their success. We provide an education that will enable our students to lead full lives and empower our graduates to be the future leaders of Charlotte and agents of change in the world beyond.

In 2007 KIPP Charlotte opened its doors to the Pride of 2015, our first group of 5th graders. On Wednesday, August 7, 2013 we welcomed the Pride of 2021. I can't believe we are embarking on our 7th year in this journey!Archives »
