Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco (BGCSF) and KIPP San Francisco College Preparatory have a deep and meaningful partnership that started in 2013, the founding year of the high school. BGCSF’s services have been expanding alongside the growing student population and now KIPP SF College Prep is fully grown to include all four grades.
Together, the two programs ensure that students have strong academic instruction, wrap-around services and extracurricular activities. The goal is for every high school student at KIPP San Francisco College Prep to graduate from high school with the academic skills, knowledge, and strength of character necessary for success in college and in the competitive world beyond.
