KIPP Detroit Imani Academy

We believe children should be at the center of every decision we make.

Our Values

  • Community
  • Agency
  • Restoration
  • Excellence

At KIPP Detroit Imani Academy, we CARE. That means we are a school that believes in:

COMMUNITY: ”What I consider mine, I will build and nurture.” This school, and what we create, belongs 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.

Our Scholars

We are a team that wakes up every day dreaming audaciously on behalf of our scholars. We are driven by a steadfast belief that the best way to help change our world for the better is to help our scholars dictate their future. Our recipe for this is love + rigor! Our promise to you is to create a rigorous standards-based educational program delivered in a nurturing, positive, and joyful learning environment. Our goal is for every child to LOVE coming to school and learning every day!
