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 Albany as measured by the NYSTP. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • This week KIPP Tech Valley Charter School teacher leaders volunteered at the Albany City Mission to help serve the community meal and give back during the holiday season.  We greatly enjoyed preparing the meal, serving the guests, and working with all of those at the Mission.  A huge shout out to Mr. Pina, Ms. Yonkers, Ms. Wardell, Ms. Suzy, Ms. Maria, and Mr. Jason who joined in the efforts to cheer up members of the Albany community through a delicious meal and conversation.  May your holiday season be merry and bright!
