Kipp: Victory Academy (K-4)
The KIPP (Knowledge is Power Program) network comprises 209 high-performing public charter schools throughout the United States. KIPP schools are unique because they employ a college-focused culture to change the trajectory of the under-resourced students they serve.

Tutors play a pivotal role by working one-on-one with students as they develop key foundational skills.
