Together, A Future Without Limits

Every student walks through the doors of school bearing gifts. Talent. Perspective. Drive. Inspiration. So at KIPP Public Schools, we support every student to see those gifts, then build the skills and confidence they need to thrive.

KIPP Nashville educates students from kindergarten through twelfth grade and is part of a national network of free, high-performing public charter schools around the country.


Together with families and communities, we create joyful, academically excellent schools that prepare students with the skills and confidence to pursue the paths they choose—college, career, and beyond—so they can lead fulfilling lives and build a more just world.


Every child grows up free to create the future they want for themselves and their communities.


Fewer than 1 in 9 Americans from educationally underserved communities graduate from college. We exist to permanently change these statistics and create transformational change in public education. Since 2005, KIPP Nashville has been built around the core belief that our students’ zip code or demographics should not dictate their ability to achieve and thrive.

"I would say students should come to KIPP because they will most definitely find comfort and reliability in teachers and classmates. I love coming to school here, because it’s fun during the lessons because of all the activities the teachers provide, and I feel safe here.”

Marly, KIPP Antioch College Prep Middle School Student
