College begins in kindergarten

KIPP Bessie Coleman Academy is part of the free public school system and enrollment is open to all students. We prepare students with the knowledge, skills, habits, and character for success in college and life. Integral to the school’s program are its core values: cultural awareness, curiosity, and citizenship.
