The KIPP Forward Difference

KIPP Forward is a program designed to help our KIPPsters go to and through college and lead a choice-filled life. KIPP Forward counselors work with Little KIPPsters starting in their junior year in high school to select the right classes, fill out the FAFSA and other college scholarship forms, prepare to take college entrance exams such as the ACT, and support them as they prepare for and select the right college and career based on their interests and passions. After high school, KIPP Texas advisors help alumni navigate the academic, social, and financial challenges they might encounter while in college or pursuing a career.

Nationally, KIPP partners with colleges and universities across the country to learn alongside each other how best to support first-generation college students. Together with nearly 100 college partners, we aim to create a scalable model for college access and completion that other institutions can replicate. Our college partners share our belief that all students deserve an excellent education, as well as our commitment to ensuring first-generation college students persist and graduate.
