The philosophy at KIPP Journey is derived from the common vision that school should be a place where each individual is free to explore who they are and who they want to become on their journey. Through strong academic curricula, thoughtful reflection and projects of self-discovery, we guide our students to discover their identities, their capabilities and their potential impact on the world. As educators, we have the limitless potential to unlock the limitless potential of our students. We believe in love, feedback and growth to become better for our students each day as they are on their journey to and through college.
At KIPP Journey Primary, we appreciate that every journey, every story, is unique. We believe our individual stories connect us in the collective human experience. Our voices tell the world who we are and our hearts invite the stories of others. We celebrate our similarities and our differences. We rejoice in learning, we love challenges, we value choice and agency. We seize every moment to lead our own learning, cultivate our curiosity and connections. We create and honor a safe space to explore the past, to learn from our successes and our mistakes and to shape the path of possibilities for our future.
KIPP Journey Primary will welcome our founding classes of Kindergarten and first grade students in August 2019. Journey Primary will grow over the next five years to educate 900 KIPPsters in grades PK3-5.
