Blytheville Collegiate High
KIPP Blytheville Collegiate High School (BCHS) was founded in 2014 and is one of two high schools in the KIPP Delta Public Schools district. Teachers focus on building a strong skill set for college and life. BCHS serves nearly 115 students in grades nine and ten, and will grow to serve 240 students in grades 9-12 over the next four years.
The academic program at BCHS is rigorous and intense. Priority is placed on the subjects of mathematics, science, social studies, English and the arts. The school also emphasizes civic engagement and leadership development. Students are required to volunteer 60 hours of their time in the community before graduation.
Commitment to Excellence
KIPP is a partnership between parents, students, and teachers that puts learning first. All three parties sign a learning pledge called the “Commitment to Excellence,” which ensures that each will do whatever it takes to help the student learn. When students matriculate to KIPP BCHS, they sign a "Re-Commitment to Excellence", further solidifying their dedication to climbing the mountain to college.
