At KIPP Detroit Imani Academy, we CARE:

COMMUNITY: ”What I consider mine, I will build and nurture.” This school and what we create belong to all of us.

AGENCY: We believe deeply in a sense of agency. The families of Detroit are best positioned to dictate their future and bring it to fruition.
Our job is to nurture the inner gifts of every child that will help them create the future of their highest aspirations.

RESTORATION: We are restorative-minded. We see challenges as opportunities to learn and grow; and know that by finding and repairing the root cause, we can be made better by the presenting obstacle in front of us.

EXCELLENCE: We possess an internal bar for excellence – our goal is to surpass ordinary standards and prove the possible.
