Who we are: KIPP OKC College Prep Middle School is a high-performing, college-preparatory public charter school. We educate scholars in grades 4-8.

What we do: We set clearly defined and measurable high expectations for academic achievement, social-emotional skill support, and character development in order to create and reinforce a well-rounded culture of achievement. We know that every scholar is different and we personalize learning based on a scholar’s needs, skills, and interests. 
How we do it: Great schools require great teachers and school leaders. We empower our educators to lead school teams, and we invest in training to help them grow as professionals. Our schools provide a safe, structured, and nurturing environment with minimal distractions and more time for both academics and character building, so our scholars love school and maximize their learning.
Why it matters: Great education transforms lives. At KIPP OKC, teachers, scholars, and families are all united around the same goal: college and a choice-filled life. We believe that an excellent college-preparatory education will set scholars up for success in whatever life path they choose. When our scholars graduate from 8th grade, they leave us prepared to enroll at high-performing schools of choice. Additionally, our KIPP OKC alumni complete college at a higher rate above the national average for all scholars, and four times higher than that of scholars from similar economic backgrounds.
