The mission of KIPP San Francisco College Preparatory is to prepare all students with the academic skills, knowledge, and strength of character to succeed in college and in the competitive world beyond. Through a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum that emphasizes critical thinking, analytical writing, and public speaking, students will be empowered to take ownership of their own education and achieve success not only as students, but also as active citizens engaged in their communities.


KIPP San Francisco College Preparatory is a free, open-enrollment, public charter school open to all students in San Francisco. The new high school opened in the Fall of 2013 with 120 ninth grade students. Each year, the school will add a grade level until it becomes a ninth-through-twelfth grade high school in 2016. In 2017, members of the founding class will graduate and enroll in college.
