Expanded KIPP Columbus Learning Campus

The KIPP Columbus learning campus is growing! In our growth we will continue to advance student learning, expand partnerships, enable superior programming, and serve as a teaching and leadership lab for schools nationwide, reimagining education through a deeper lens of antiracism, excellence, and joy.

Since the completion of  Phase 1 of the current campus, the KIPP Columbus team has been working to find ways to educate additional students given a significant waiting list and this project will nearly double the number of students educated on KIPP’s campus to 4,000.

Our KIPP Columbus Learning Campus will include grades K-12, across various buildings/schools along with an early learning center (infant-preschool), and the future expansion will largely reflect our current building structures/configurations, but with additional students at the various grade bands. The new facilities will support at least grades K-5 and renovations/expansion of current facilities will support the secondary grades’ expansion. Enhancement of current/future amenities and programs will also be further designed in the months/years ahead.

Two local, minority owned firms are leading the design and construction for our expansion –  Moody Nolan , the country’s largest African American owned architecture firm and Smoot Construction, a six decades+,  family owned construction management company here in Central Ohio. We are honored to work with them, and you/our broader team and family, and community as we bring this to life.
