Virtues : Humanity | Wisdom | Courage | Justice
The mission of KIPP King Collegiate is to prepare students to live inspired and ethical lives by developing within them extraordinary academic skills, a life-long passion for learning, and the resolve to change their own lives and the world around them through acts of excellence, justice, humanity, and courage.
Named after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., KIPP King Collegiate High School opened in the fall of 2007 as the first KIPP high school west of the Rockies. Our aim is to establish the gold standard for providing a superior, college preparatory, public high school education in a low-income community. Although the majority of our students will be the first in their families to go to college, 80 percent of our students are accepted to four-year colleges, and 20 percent are accepted to two-year community colleges. Upon graduating from KIPP King, all students will have the wisdom, habits of mind, and commitment of heart to be change agents in the communities they serve.
