Our Schools

The mission of KIPP Philadelphia Elementary Academy is to cultivate the intellect, foster the character, and ignite the imagination of our students so they can become leaders who choose their own futures in college and beyond.


We will realize our mission and vision if we are successful at living our values every day. Our values are teamwork, determination, excellence, integrity, and joy. These values are the basis for everything we do at KIPP Philadelphia Elementary Academy and describe how students, staff, and families will act in our school community.


KPEA has a well-rounded and academically rigorous program that includes one hour of math, science and social studies as well as 2.5 hours of literacy instruction daily. Students also have classes in art, PE, music, character and have scheduled recess time.

"The structure and environment that KIPP provides is the best. As a parent you feel that the staff wants each and every child to succeed. The best interest of the family is always a priority"
