Our Mission & Vision

KIPP Colorado is a network of five free, open-enrollment, college-preparatory public charter schools dedicated to preparing students in underserved communities for success in both college and life. KIPP Colorado's mission is to equip our students with the academic skills and character strengths necessary to succeed in college and the competitive world beyond.

Our vision is that one day, all public school students in Colorado will have the option to attend an excellent K-12 school and to graduate college empowered to choose their path in life and make positive contributions to their communities.

Our Values

Adults, students, and alumni of KIPP Colorado's community strive to embody these values:

  • Team & Family

  • We treat one another with kindness, concern, and respect. When a teammate needs help, we give. When we need help, we ask. We work collaboratively to solve problems. We are all focused on the same goal. Our community is our Team and Family.
  • Excellence

  • We perform to a high standard of quality in all that we endeavor. We take accountability for our actions and performance, recognizing our own strengths and areas of growth, and strive to meet and exceed expectations.  When there are problems, we find solutions. When there is a better way, we find it.
  • Grit

  • We constantly push ourselves to do better and work relentlessly to achieve our goals. We get up when we fall. We find a way to overcome obstacles.
  • Zest

  • We show enthusiasm for learning. We demonstrate a thirst for knowledge and a passion for new discoveries. We all can and will learn.
