• FOCUS ON RESULTS

    For almost a decade, KTV has been the best. KTV has had 7 cohorts of students finish the 8th grade. All 7 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.

  • "Kids and Teens alike can find quality and engaging arts experiences here at the Arts Center"

    Our classes and camps are taught by passionate professionals, either NYS Certified Art Teachers or Teaching Artists well seasoned in their medium of expertise. Our classes and camps are small by choice so that your budding artist can get the attention he or she deserves.

    Camps and Classes at the Arts Center are organized into four categories unless otherwise specified:

    KIDS (Grades 1 - 5)
    1/2 days available in this age group for Summer 2016
    SERIOUS FUN for BIG KIDS (Grades 4 - 5)
    PRE-TEENS (Middle School Grades 6 - 8)
    TEENS (High School Grades 9 - 12)

    REQUIREMENTS

    Our camps are tailored carefully to each age group and ability level. For summer camps, children must be entering these grades in the fall. These are noted in the class/camp descriptions. All Serious Fun camps are intended for 4th and 5th grade children who have a sincere interest in the medium being taught, and many require excellent fine motor skills as they begin to use advanced tools. To maximize your child’s enjoyment and safety, please adhere to these guidelines. For questions regarding camp programming, or to register your child, please call Chris at (518) 273-0552 x 231.

  • As the grade 5 ELA teacher leader at KIPP Tech Valley, I am super proud of my Kippsters for all of the grit they showed on the State Assessment this past week.  I wanted to give a huge shout out to our students who worked exceptionally hard giving their best effort over the three days in order to show what they know.  At KIPP we often say, "If you want to be the best, you have to work the hardest."  I am proud of the hard work and effort that was displayed.  Trying one's best in the classroom and in life is super important and speaks a tremendous amount about character. Keep working hard and make sure to finish the year on a positive note.

  • Congratulations to Nazirah M. and Treasure E. who earned their grade 5 uniform shirts this past week.  Both Kippsters demonstrated tremendous grit, self-control, and optimism in order to get the job done and join the grade 5 team and family in maroon.  As their teacher leader and homeroom teacher I am super proud of both students.  I also wanted to shout out the families of these students for their support as well.  Nazirah and Treasure you are both yet another example of the KIPP credo, "When you make good choices, good things happen!"  Keep up the great work!
