Mission

KIPP: Summit Academy (KSA) students, families and staff prepare every child to go to and through college and lead choice-filled lives. KSA is a Team and family defined by growth mindset, self-reflection, and mutual respect. Through teamwork and academic excellence, KSA students become passionate readers and critical thinkers who realize their highest potential to benefit themselves, their families, and their community.

History

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.
