College Partnerships

KIPP Colorado is deeply committed to preparing our students from underserved communities to climb the mountain to and through college. Together, with the national KIPP network, we believe partnerships between secondary and higher education will help improve college completion rates for first-generation students.

A KIPP College Partnership allows KIPP and institutions of higher education to:

  • Identify areas where we can each strengthen our support around college readiness, matriculation, and graduation – and commit to implement these strategies.
  • Take a leadership role in identifying organizational structures and supports to improve persistence and graduation rates for KIPP and other first-generation students.
  • Use learnings to inform a long-term scalable model for college access and completion that others can replicate.

Current KIPP Partners

We're proud to share the list of our current college partners. These schools were selected based on alumni matriculation and student interests and needs. Beyond the schools below, we are developing a target list of future college partners that we believe will best serve our students and ultimately achieve our goals.
