WHO WE ARE

Every student in Nashville deserves access to a college-preparatory, public school seat.

KIPP Nashville’s vision is that every child grows up free to create the future they want for themselves and their communities.

Our mission is  that 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.

Each day begins with a simple equation.

Knowing the Need + Knowing the Solution = Responsibility to Make It Happen

WHY KIPP

THE NEED

In 2014, only 38 or less than 3 of every 100 of juniors in the high schools that serve students in East and North Nashville scored “college-ready” on all tested subjects of the ACT. We must help more of our students be ready for an opportunity-filled future.

According to a 2014 report by the Education Trust, 79% of Americans in the top income quartile graduate from college. At the same time, fewer than 1 in 12 Americans from low-income communities graduate from college. We must close this gap.

THE SOLUTION

KIPP Nashville works together with students and families to 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.

THE RESPONSIBILITY

KIPP’s founders always say that “promises to kids are sacred.” From the first home visit with every student, we promise to do “whatever it takes” to help our KIPPsters climb the mountain to and through college. In our second decade of service, we are opening elementary schools, expanding to new neighborhoods and growing support of college-bound KIPPsters through high school into middle school to ensure the right college match plan.

By 2020, KIPP Nashville will have a full Kindergarten through College network of schools and programs supporting almost 3,000 students (K-12) and over 500 graduates in college and beyond. Our long-term goal is for 79% of our students to graduate from college.
