• FOCUS ON RESULTS

    KTV has had 6 cohorts of students finish the 8th grade. All 6 cohorts have been the highest performing grade 8 students in the City of Albany as measured by the NYS testing program. In 2013, KTV's first class of students reached college age and almost 90% of them were accepted into college with over 80% matriculating in the fall of 2013.
  • CHOICE & COMMITMENT

    Students, their parents, and the faculty of KIPP: TECH VALLEY charter school choose to participate in the program. No one is assigned or forced to attend KIPP: TECH VALLEY Charter School. Everyone must make and uphold a commitment to the school and to each other to put in the time and the individual effort required to achieve success.
  • MORE TIME

    There are no shortcuts when it comes to success in academics and life. With an extended school day, week, and year, students have more time in the classroom to acquire the academic knowledge and skills that will prepare them for competitive high schools and colleges, as well as more opportunities to engage in diverse extracurricular experiences.
  • POWER TO LEAD

    The leaders of KIPP schools are effective academic and organizational leaders who understand that great schools require great school leaders. They have control over their individual school budget and personnel. They are free to swiftly move dollars or make staffing changes, allowing them maximum effectiveness in helping students learn.
  • HIGH EXPECTATIONS

    We have clearly defined and measurable high expectations for academic achievement and conduct that make no excuses based on the students' backgrounds. Students, parents, teachers, and staff create and reinforce a culture of achievement and support through a range of rewards and consequences for academic performance and behavior.

    Le Moyne Dolphins include:Sheila C, GT, Josephine P, & Tamya R,

    Oswego Lakers: Tamia C, Tamia R, Secret C, Victoria A, & Nakai C

    Oneonta Dragons: Angie A, Zamarion C, Dushawn J, Vashawntee T, & Nazara W

    2) Shout out to Khalida M.of Le Moyne for her optimism and work ethic over the first two days...She is off to a great start here at KIPP.
    3) Shout  out to Keyon M. of Le Moyne.  This Dolphin has been swimming to success already by earning some right is right answers in class and continuing to make outstanding choices.
