KIPP Through College

KIPP Through College (KTC) is a part of the broader KIPP approach that aims to ensure that all students are prepared to succeed in college and live choice-filled lives. Through high school transition support, one-on-one college counseling, alumni advising for KIPPsters in college, and career readiness services, KIPP students go on to matriculate and graduate from high school and college, ready to begin their careers.  Ultimately, the vision of the KIPP Through College program is that all students have the access, skills and resources necessary to navigate to and through college into self-sufficient adulthood.
