KIPP Through College Program
The KIPP Through College (KTC) program is an essential part of the KIPP education. The goal of KTC is to provide ongoing academic and organizational support to empower all KIPP alumni to achieve success in high school, in college, and also as they transition into the competitive professional world.
From KIPP’s inception, college graduation for students has been our big goal. When students choose KIPP, they are choosing a commitment to academic excellence and perseverance no matter the obstacles, and in return, KIPP promises to support each student through the rigorous journey of getting to and through college. We are dedicated to providing the resources necessary to ensure they persist in climbing the mountain to and through college.
In middle school, the KIPP Through College (KTC) program begins by advising KNOS students and their families throughout the high school transition process. In high school, KNOS students and alumni receive support from College Advisors in the following areas: academic advising, ACT preparation, summer program support, college tours, college admissions and application assistance, scholarships, and ﬁnancial literacy.
In college, Alumni Advisors support KNOS alumni by visiting them on their college campuses, in addition to remaining in contact via email and phone. Advisors discuss academic progress, ﬁnancial aid, social pressures, as well as internship and career options to support alumni as they work toward graduation.
