• 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.

  • Reading ALL STAR: Jabez D.

    2016-02-02 22:43:27
    A huge shout out to Jabez D. of Le Moyne College for being selected as the Reading All Star of the month.  Over the past month, Jabez has continued to demonstrated great self-control and zest with his flood book, do now and indpendent reading assignments in class, as well as with his ELA homework.  As a result he has really taken the spotlight and been a great example of what it means to "read to achieve!"  Reading is the key to success!  Working hard daily on becoming a better reader not only helps students like Jabez achieve greater success in ELA class, but in all subject areas across the board.  Keep feeding that brain knowledge!  You have to read!
