KIPP: Stand Academy is the first KIPP School in Minnesota and is located behind the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis. KIPP was brought to Minnesota thanks to the generosity and interests of our founding investor, The Carlson Family Foundation. KIPP, the "Knowledge Is Power Program," is a national network of free, open-enrollment, college-preparatory public charter schools with a track record of preparing students in underserved communities for success in college and life. There are 125 KIPP schools in 20 different states and the District of Columbia serving more than 39,000 students.
KIPP: Stand Academy serves students in 5th to 8th grade in Minneapolis and surrounding areas. Rigorous academic preparation and holistic character development have been the focus of KIPP Stand Academy since its opening in 2008. This dual purpose drives all aspects of our schools, shaping our college-going culture, extended school day and year, and curriculum. It explains why our school leader and all of our teachers ask so much of our students, yet also provide joyful experiences in exchange for commitment and hard work. One of our KIPP parents, Lisa Dunlap, says it best: "KIPP has been the solid foundation of support we needed to help springboard our daughter into a quality high school that will help further her education and prepare her for college and beyond. I love KIPP!"
KIPP: Stand Academy's primary goal is to prepare all of our students for success in college and life. To do that, we are focused on ensuring our students develop both the academic skills and the character necessary to help them define what they stand for. Through a culture of high expectations, we seek to instill in our students the values of grit, zest, self control and social intellgence. At KIPP Stand Academy our teachers are unified in doing what's best for students. Our teachers share best practices and collaborate as a school and with a powerful network of over 2,000 teachers nationally.
