KIPP Heritage Academy (Grades 5-8) is a public charter middle school located in San Jose.
Our mission is to develop in our students the knowledge, skills, and character essential to thrive in college while maintaining their identities and connections to the community.
At KIPP Heritage, we embrace our histories as we build a brighter future in East San Jose and beyond. We see greatness and potential in every student, family, and community.
Our students will be prepared to thrive in the global economy as they develop critical thinking skills and deep conceptual knowledge through academically challenging courses. Through a rigorous literacy program, students write and tell their stories, as well as listen to the stories of others with compassion. As our students master skills and content necessary to be successful in college and life, they will learn to advocate for themselves and their communities with humility and clarity.
Equipped with this strong foundation of knowledge, skills, and character, KIPP Heritage students will be agents of positive change, empowered as authors of their own lives.
KIPP has a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
