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 public charter school open to all students in San Jose. KIPP Heritage began in 2014 and now educates students in fifth- through eighth-grades in partnership with the Franklin-McKinley School District. In the upcoming 2017-18 school year, the school will be located in a brand new facility next to the Seven Trees Community Center.
