KIPP Legacy is a college-preparatory elementary school serving kindergarten through second grade with a focus on providing rich academic, cultural, and character building experiences to support our students' development and journey to college and beyond. At KIPP Legacy, we are cultivating the global leaders of tomorrow by helping our students discover their talents, gifts, and role in life and the world.
KIPP Legacy Preparatory School will cultivate confident, intelligent, college-going, and culturally aware TRAILBLAZERS, who will become global leaders able to create a brighter PATH for themselves, their community, and the world.
