About Us

KIPP Central City Primary is a true community school. The majority of our scholars live within a five-mile radius of KCCP and the families who choose KCCP know that they are joining a deeply rooted part of their community. We now have generations of families that have been making our work meaningful since we opened our doors.

KCCP is a school that deeply values students as our greatest gift and teachers as intellectuals. We are extremely excited about working with you and your child to ensure your child has an exceptional educational experience! We are committed to helping each and every KIPPster discover his/her passion through meaningful opportunities each and every single day.

At KCCP we believe in Revolutionary Love.
