KIPP Corazón Academy

ENROLLMENT
For the 2017-18 school year, KIPP Corazón Academy will accept interest forms during the interest period for students entering TK through 1st grade for the 2017-18 school year.  Should we receive more interest forms than spaces available for a grade level, the school will host a lottery.
