Discover This School

KIPP Bay Academy is an innovative 5th through 8th grade public school that prepares its students for the best high schools and colleges in the nation. The school opened its doors in July 2003 with 75 fifth grade students and will add a grade each year until2006. The learning environment is rigorous and intensive. Students attend classes from 7:30 - 5:00 daily and every other Saturday. The staff gives nothing less than what we expect from our students l00%. Teachers do whatever it takes to meet the needs of the students, including being available in the evenings for homework help. Hard work, perseverance, and preparation will equip our students with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to reach incredible heights.

We provide our students with a college preparatory curriculum. Step I (grades 5 & 6) is spent teaching and reinforcing basic reading, writing, math, history, science, and geography skills. Step II (grades 7 & 8) is spent preparing students for college preparatory high school by teaching algebra, a foreign language, science labs, classic literature, and other subjects.

Students stay at KIPP Bay Academy for grades 5, 6, 7, and 8. The school will always remain small, never growing larger than 350 students. The school is located in the Western Addition. However, we welcome students from all neighborhoods of San Francisco. We are accepting applications from students currently in grade 4.
