KIPP Capital Region Alumni & Community

Advisors help KIPPsters navigate the academic, social, and financial challenges of college. The result? KIPP alumni graduate from college at a dramatically higher rate than their peers.

Our whole child approach at KIPP extends beyond school walls and into the broader community we serve. Staff and students engage in community service activities and partnerships to build a better tomorrow in the Cities of Albany, Troy and beyond.

Service projects on campus have supported efforts in the Capital Region to provide food to those in need, as well as collect household items, clothing and toiletries to be donated to partner organizations.
