About Us

KIPP Believe Primary (KBP) and KIPP Believe College Prep (KBCP) empower students with the academic skills and character traits to live happy, healthy lives, be prepared to succeed at the colleges of their choice, and improve the world around them.  In January 2019, the two schools will become one when they move into their new facility at Columbia Parc on St. Bernard Avenue! 

KIPP Believe is a school with a deep history and an incredible future. We believe that education is freedom, and every child in New Orleans deserves an excellent school. We teach the most amazing kids in the world. We promise to believe in every child as our own, never doubting their strength. With love for our students, we are the hardest-working school in New Orleans, giving everything we can and never giving up. We celebrate our accomplishments, overcome the barriers, and keep centered in our love for our scholars and the strength of our team. We will laugh, smile, sing, dance, and have fun. We never complain or speak badly of others. We are fueled by our faith in the better tomorrow that we are building together. All of us, all the time, all the way. WE BELIEVE.
