In 2014, KIPP New Jersey took responsibility for the students attending Newark’s Bragaw Avenue school and created the network’s first turnaround charter school: KIPP Life Academy. Founded by a former teacher from KIPP SPARK Academy - one of the highest-performing KIPP elementary schools nationally - Life offers a powerful academic and character-building program designed to close the opportunity gap by second grade.
The mission of KIPP New Jersey is to create a network of schools in Camden and Newark, New Jersey, that instill in their students the desire and ability to succeed in college, in order to change the world. KIPP New Jersey is growing to serve students in Camden and Newark across 15 schools.
School Information for Families
The Newark Enrolls School Guidebook provides an overview for families of how each participating school is performing in several different areas, including attendance, test scores, and graduation rates. It also provides information about community partnerships, as well as sports, clubs, and other activities.
