It is the mission of KIPP TRUTH Academy (KTA) to equip students who have been underserved with the knowledge, skills, and character traits necessary to succeed in top-quality high schools, colleges, and the competitive world. KTA is the pioneer middle school in the KIPP Dallas-Fort Worth Public Schools (KIPP DFW), an emerging network of high-performing, college-preparatory charter schools which serve under-resourced southern Dallas neighborhoods. At KIPP DFW, there are no shortcuts: outstanding educators, more time in school, a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum, and a strong culture of achievement and support help our students make significant academic gains and continue to excel in high school and college. Approximately 90 percent of our students are considered economically disadvantaged (88 percent qualify for the federal free and reduced lunch program) and most students come from neighborhoods where US Census data shows less than five percent of residents graduate from college.
