Mission and Vision

We see greatness and potential in every student, family, and community.

Our students will be prepared to thrive in the global economy as they develop critical thinking skills and deep conceptual knowledge through academically challenging courses. Through a rigorous literacy program, students write and tell their stories, as well as listen to the stories of others with compassion. As our students master skills and content necessary to be successful in college and life, they will learn to advocate for themselves and their communities with humility and clarity.

At KIPP Heritage Academy, we embrace our histories as we build a brighter future in East San Jose and beyond. Equipped with this strong foundation of knowledge, skills, and character, KIPP Heritage students will be agents of positive change, empowered as authors of their own lives.


KIPP Heritage Academy is a free, open-enrollment, public charter school open to all students in San Jose. The new middle school will open in the Franklin-McKinley School District in 2014 with 100 fifth grade students. Each year, the school will add a grade level until it becomes a fifth-through-eighth grade middle school in 2017.
