About KIPP Capital Region

KIPP Capital Region launched on July 1, 2022 as the new partnership between KIPP Albany and Troy Prep. KIPP Capital Region is a unified group of seven schools striving towards excellence in education in the Capital Region.

Together, A Future Without Limits

Located in both Albany and Troy, KIPP Capital Region serves 2,500+ students in grades K-12 across seven schools. KIPP Capital Region is governed by a local Board of Directors focused on providing students with the tools they need to achieve their limitless potential in college, career, and beyond. We believe every student walks trough the doors of schools bearing gifts. Talent. Perspective. Drive. Inspiration. So at KIPP Capital Region, we support every student to see those gifts, then build the skills and confidence they need to thrive.

KIPP Capital Region is affiliated with the KIPP Foundation, a national network college-preparatory public charter schools with a 25-year track record of preparing students in educationally underserved communities for success in college and in life. We are a team of more than 270 schools, 6,000 educators, and 140,000 students and alumni. Together, we continually raise the bar for teaching and learning, then ensure success in one classroom travels across our network to hundreds more. And while each of our schools reflects the community to which it belongs, we are united around a shared commitment: a future without limits.

For students and families, KIPP Capital Region will provide stronger instruction and opportunities for students. For teachers, KIPP Capital Region formalizes processes to share best practices, improves access to professional development, and facilitates the creation of more robust curricula. This presents an opportunity to build a stronger teacher and leader pipeline, which is important to the success of our students and to accelerate our growth. For our community, this provides an opportunity to leverage our collective strength to better partner and work with our community allies to better serve our families and support our Capital Region community.

Every day, KIPP students and alumni here in the Capital Region and across the country deploy their smarts and heart to break through any barrier that dares stand between them and the future they want. Because KIPPsters know they have everything they need inside, and a KIPP family at their backs. Together, they are lighting ever-wider paths to opportunity and change. For themselves. For all those who will follow them. And for us all.

At KIPP Capital Region, we believe in the power of education to enable our students to achieve a future without limits, apply their unique talents, and change the world.
