As Tulsa’s original college-preparatory public school, KIPP Tulsa opened in 2005 with a founding class of 5th graders and now includes a middle school, known as KIPP Tulsa College Prep, and a high school, known as KIPP Tulsa University Prep.
Our mission is simple:
Together with families and communities, we create joyful, academically excellent schools that prepare students with the skills and confidence to pursue the paths they choose —college, career, and beyond—so they can lead fulfilling lives and build a more just world.
We’re focused on college, and for good reason. Research has consistently proven the benefits of completing a college education.
Well-rounded lives should include opportunities to grow inside and outside the classroom. At KIPP Tulsa, we have an award-winning marching band that is recognized as one of the best in the state of Oklahoma. And our athletic programs and extracurricular activities offer fun and meaningful ways for students to build character and strong school communities.
