KIPP Sol Academy opened in August 2013 under the leadership of founding school leader Rachelle Minix, a graduate of the prestigious KIPP School Leadership Program. At KIPP Sol, we believe. We believe each child is unique and should be celebrated and nurtured as so. We believe that education is the path to equity and freedom. We believe excellent skills in reading, writing, speaking and math give us a powerful voice and make us independent. The power is within each of us. We believe that intelligence is malleable. Effective effort is what makes us smart. We believe we must work to earn trust and build relationships with students, families and teammates in order to best serve the community. Our students are who we are. We believe we must teach our students with love and empathy while always holding them to the highest expectations. Anything less would be a disservice to our students and the community.

People often ask about how we became the highest performing middle school English language-arts program in LAUSD in such a short amount of time... Answer: our students LOVE to read. Whether in class, at home, or during lunch, you will see our students engaged in and loving the imagination adventures that a great book provides!
Caught reading by our secret reading camera are these two world-changing Advocates!

Congratulations to our founder, Victoria! She is on her way to the Thacher School this week alongside her classmate, Angel.
As Vicky said, with hard work and love, all is possible!
Keep blazing your path, Angel and Vicky! You have an entire team and family of people cheering you on at KIPP Sol!

We're excited to welcome Victoria to Thacher's #Classof2021 in just a few days! As part of our #Thacher2021 project—an effort to get to know the new additions to our community a little better before they arrive—we asked them who had inspired and supported them along the way. Victoria, who hails from Whittier, California, said: "I am grateful for my KIPP Sol Academy teachers who worked tirelessly to ensure that I would grow academically and socially. Each day they proved that with love, hard work, and dedication, anything is possible."
