A national network of college-prep charter schools located in underserved communities.

Short for "Knowledge is Power Program," KIPP founded in 1994, is a national network of free, open-enrollment, college-preparatory public schools with a track record of preparing students in under-served communities for success in college and in life. It was founded by Mike Feinberg and Dave Levin in Houston. They formed a partnership in 2000 with Doris and Donald Fisher, co-founders of the Gap Inc., to train school leaders to follow the models created by the first KIPP middle schools.

As of mid 2013, there were 141 KIPP schools in 20 states and the District of Columbia serving more than 50,000 students in grades K-12.
