KIPP 3D Academy was founded in 2001 and serves students from the Northside of Houston on their journey to and through college. The mission of KIPP 3D Academy is simple, yet powerful ­— to provide students with the knowledge, critical thinking skills, and character traits required to prepare them for the rigors of competitive high schools, colleges, and the world beyond. This mission, as well as the commitment to excellence made by each student, family, and faculty member, has empowered our students to reach farther than even their own expectations, proving each day that they can achieve their goals through desire, discipline, and dedication.


KIPP 3D serves 440 college-bound 5th- through 8th-grade students.

Our student body is 86% Hispanic, 12% African-American, 1% Asian, and 1% Caucasian. 

Accelerated curriculum is offered to not only bring students up to grade level and then beyond, but to help them gain the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in excellent high schools and universities. 

Individualized support through blended learning is a critical part of our program, and our team adjusts their teaching and leverages technology to best meet the needs of all learners in the classroom.

KIPPsters participate in robust extracurricular programs including art, band, dance, robotics, numerous athletic teams, yearbook and cheer.

Teaching at KIPP 3D

The team and family at KIPP 3D Academy is full of dedicated, passionate, and creative learners who are excited about learning and growing alongside their students. Teachers come to KIPP 3D because they are interested in teaching alongside others who will push them to reach their full potential in the same way we push our students. While the work we do is challenging, we believe the success of our students makes it all worthwhile.
