KIPP Forward

Through KIPP Forward (formerly KIPP Through College), we're supporting students to choose and prepare for the educational and career path that fits their goals and sense of purpose. Once on their way, our KIPP Forward team helps alumni keep moving forward while pursuing their dreams.

The KIPP Forward Approach

KIPPsters set a high bar for their futures. For some, that means being the first in their family to graduate from college or buy a home. For others, it means serving our country or creating a business. KIPP North Carolina schools ensure each student has the skills and confidence to pursue any path that leads to their highest aspirations. Our counselors support students to choose and prepare for a right-fit college or education path and a meaningful career.

Finding a Match

KIPP NC uses its College & Career Match Playbook while counseling students and families through the post-secondary decision-making process.

Persisting Through College

Once alumni are on their way, KIPP NC advisors help alumni keep moving forward, tackling academic, social, and financial challenges they might encounter while pursuing their dreams.

Alumni Programs & Offerings

Across the state of North Carolina, KIPPsters are making their mark. They are earning degrees, building businesses, reforming policy, serving their communities, and rising through the ranks of companies and organizations. Together, they’re creating a future without limits, and KIPP NC is there to support them along the way.
