KIPP Nashville Collegiate High School verified non-profit

Nashville, Tennessee


KIPP Nashville Collegiate High School is a free, open-enrollment public charter school educating students of North and East Nashville with a rigorous, college-preparatory program. KIPP Collegiate is built around three core values: Excellence, Heart, and Growth.

KIPP Nashville Collegiate High School was founded in 2014 in response to the growing demand for a high quality high school that would equip graduates with the necessary knowledge and skills to be truly “College Ready” by graduation. Collegiate students participate in a four-year college-readiness course that supports families and students to build college-going identities, habits and skills.

In its first year of service, Collegiate was the highest-performing non-selective high school in Nashville. KIPP Collegiate ranked in the 99th percentile for all public schools in the state for growth in reading, and 98th percentile for growth in math.
