At KIPP Prize Preparatory Academy we know that the prize will not be sent to us. We have to win it.

We know that some of the most competitive and robust opportunities in life and career exist in our own backyard- and we relentlessly prepare our students to be able to access those opportunities.

We provide a rigorous literacy-based, college preparatory curriculum combined with an emphasis on personalized learning, character, and a diverse range of cultural and enrichment experiences to enable our students to access the opportunities in the Silicon Valley and beyond. We believe that an excellent school is built when a thriving student and staff culture work in tandem, to climb the mountain to college.

We know that on our journey to college-readiness, there will be challenges. In partnership with our engaged and active families, we persist in our mission by approaching each second of each day of each year with joy and love- drawing on our most joyful and creative moments and keeping our eyes on the prize of our choice.
