To prepare all students with the academic skills, knowledge, and strength of character to succeed in college and in the competitive world beyond. Through a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum that emphasizes critical thinking, analytical writing, and public speaking, students will be empowered to take ownership of their own education and achieve success not only as students, but also as active citizens engaged in their communities.

SFCP cultivates facilitators of healing who work together to dismantle systems of oppression through the discovery of self and the development of empathy for others.

School Profile

As I walk across the stage with my college diploma, I am going to be very grateful for everyone who helped me along the way. KIPP is like my second family.

Patrick Silva, SFCP Alum
SFCP isn't just a place to improve or be the best, it's the school to be you, be your culture, be the goat [Greatest Of All Time] it is a school to unlock your potential.
Darwin Chan, Grade 11
I love working at SFCP because we don't settle for anything less than the best for our students. We view obstacles with a critical eye and innovate. I love being a part of that process and watching my colleagues and students work towards a common goal with a shared vision.
Mr. Olausen, English Teacher

SFCP has the most diverse student body of any school I’ve worked at, and with this diversity comes a variety of experiences, perspectives, and expressions. My students daily have taught me so much about myself. They give me energy, make me laugh, and provide a level of wisdom beyond their years. I truly love every student and am thankful for how they have impacted my life.

Mr. Laymon: Assistant Principal
