KIPP Through College

KIPP Through College (KTC) is a part of the broader KIPP approach that aims to prepare students to identify their passion, purpose, and plan for how to thrive in college, shape the future, and positively impact the world. Our vision is for all students to have the access, skills and resources to navigate through college or take on the workforce. KIPP students matriculate and graduate from high school, ready to begin their higher education or pursue a career path

Your KIPP Through College advising team has gathered these COVID-19 Resources for Alums to help navigate the challenges that may arise during the Covid-19 pandemic.

College Match Guidance

While attending a KIPP high school, students and their families are supported in selecting a college that is right for them. Support services include: academic advising, standardized test preparation, college tours, help applying for college and scholarships.

Support through College Graduation

Support for KIPP students doesn’t end once they graduate from a KIPP high school - it extends through college graduation. Many students face financial, academic, and social barriers on their path to obtaining a college degree. KIPP persistence advisors help them overcome these barriers.

Career Readiness

While each KIPP student receives a college prep education, we know some students will pursue a non-college career path. We help students expand their knowledge of career options--and understand the steps needed to pursue the career of their choice. KIPP students receive career guidance, exposure to different professions, and access to internships and career opportunities.
