On December 1st, 15 fourth- and fifth-grade students from KIPP Corazón Academy (KCA) went to UCLA to participate in "We Declare: A Youth Summit." More than 300 students from schools around the city participated in the event, which was also attended by UCLA professors, education students, and other teachers from around Los Angeles. KCA students were the youngest in attendance, as every other participating school was a high school.
Children’s author and illustrator, Bethany Barton, recently visited KIPP Corazón Academy through the A to KLA program, which provides KIPP LA students with rich learning experiences by exposing them to professional authors and giving them a book to take home. Read on for more details.
KIPP LA will open its fourteenth school, KIPP Corazón Academy, in South Gate this coming 2017-18 school year for kindergarten and first grade students, eventually growing to be a K-8 school.
