KIPP is a non-profit network of college-preparatory, public charter schools with a 20-year track record of preparing students in educationally underserved communities for success in college and life. KIPP currently educates 88,000 students in 209 schools across the country, including Indianapolis. KIPP Indy Public Schools (KIPP Indy) was founded in 2004 with one class of fifth grade students and has grown to educate more than 700 students across two schools. KIPP Indy Unite Elementary was founded in 2014 with 100 kindergarten students and will grow a grade level each year until they educate 600 students in grades K-6.

Of the students that attend KIPP Indy, 90% qualify for free and reduced lunch, 94% are African American, and 20% receive special education services.
