The mission of KIPP Summit Academy is that students, families, and staff work together to prepare every child for college. Through hard work, high expectations, mutual respect and discipline, we will all realize our highest potential and become agents of social change.

KIPP Summit Academy strives to develop in our students the academic skills, intellectual habits, and character qualities necessary to succeed in high school, college, and the competitive world beyond. Strengthened by these skills, habits, and qualities, the students of KIPP Summit Academy prioritize the goal of a college education in achieving personal success. The mission of KIPP Summit Academy is not easily accomplished; our students quickly learn that there are no shortcuts to realize these goals.


KIPP Summit Academy is a free, open-enrollment, college-preparatory public charter middle school in San Lorenzo, California. Since opening in 2003, KIPP Summit has been committed to creating an empowering, successful, college-preparatory school of choice in San Lorenzo, one of the most under-resourced and overlooked communities in the Bay Area. With a “no excuses and no shortcuts” philosophy, KIPP Summit fosters within its faculty, students and their families the desire, discipline, and dedication necessary to achieve a college education. The majority of KIPP Summit students go on to enroll at KIPP King Collegiate High School, located on the same campus.
