KIPP Summit Academy has created a small, personalized learning environment for its students. A relatively small student body allows the school to create a cohesive school culture, where all students and families known and feel a sense of belonging. KIPP Summit is committed to developing poised, confident, articulate leaders who will use their education and life experiences to create positive change in their own lives, within their communities, and among our global society. The school’s mission and values drive everything at KIPP Summit, from the culture to the academic program. Students take charge of their own learning by participating in class, listening to teachers and teammates in a respectful manner, and asking questions if they do not understand. KIPP Summit has an extended school year and longer daily schedule. Students arrive by 7:25 a.m. daily and stay until between 4 p.m. – 5 p.m. as needed.
