KIPP Bloom is a school in the Englewood neighborhood serving students in grades 5-8. The mission of KIPP Bloom is to ensure our scholars develop the academic and character strengths to thrive in Chicago's best high schools, graduate from our nation’s best colleges, and lead happy, peaceful lives. To achieve this mission, we provide our scholars daily, individual academic support, great teachers who effectively integrate technology to maximize learning, community and co-curricular programs in the arts and sciences, and a culture that encourages all of our “team and family” to bloom into their best selves. Our KIPP Through College (KTC) program helps students apply to and enroll in excellent high schools. KTC continues to support KIPP graduates in high school and beyond to ensure they apply to, enroll in, and graduate from college.
