KIPP Forward OKC
Our KIPP students and alumni are setting a high bar for their futures – earning college degrees, starting businesses, serving in our country’s military, and more. Through KIPP Forward (previously known as KIPP Through College), we’re supporting KIPP students and alumni to find their best-fit college and career pathways.
Starting in middle school, KIPP Forward counselors provide guidance and support as our KIPPsters choose and prepare for the path that fits their goals and sense of purpose. Once our alumni are on their way, KIPP Forward teams help them keep moving forward while pursuing their dreams.
At KIPP Forward OKC, we offer the following supports for KIPP students in Oklahoma City:
High School Placement
Starting in 7th grade, we work together with students and families on high school placement. This includes high school visits as well as personalized guidance on choosing schools to ensure the most complete college-prep experience.
College and Career Prep
In 9th and 10th grade, we begin introducing students to their college and career options, including campus visits throughout the year. In 11th and 12th grade we help students choose and prepare for their postsecondary pathways, including college match and wish lists, ACT/SAT test prep, and college application guidance.
Post Graduation Support
We stay in touch with KIPP alumni after they graduate high school and move on to postsecondary pathways. For our alumni in college, this includes quarterly check-ins with a dedicated KIPP Forward advisor.
