The first Education Partner to participate in this program is KIPP Houston Public Schools and their KIPP Through College (KTC) Program. KIPP, the Knowledge is Power Program, is a nonprofit network for 200 college-preparatory, public charter schools education early childhood, elementary, middle, and high school students.

“KIPP represents the very best when it comes to K12 student support,” UMA President Derek Apanovitch said. “We can’t think of a better partner for launching this new program and introducing it to so many young adults. UMA’s support-intensive model will ensure that the KIPP students continue to have the resources they need to succeed.

“When our students face challenges, whether academic, technical or personal, UMA is here to help,” Apanovitch added.

“KIPP’s mission has always been focused on preparing students to lead choice-filled lives,” Bryan Contreras, Executive Director of KIPP Through College (KTC) with KIPP Houston Public Schools, said. “We know there are many paths to fulfilling lives and careers, and are pleased to be UMA’s first Education Partner. As we help our students complete their journey towards higher education degrees, we are excited to introduce this new pathway to our KIPP alumni.”

UMA will offer grants to offset the tuition charged to students who are alumni of KIPP and other schools, programs or organizations that become UMA Education Partners. To be eligible to receive the grants students must enroll and remain in good standing in one of the following UMA associate degree programs: Health Information and Technology (HIT), Health Sciences – Health Technology and Systems (HS-HTS) or Health Sciences – Pharmacy Technician (HS-PHT).

At UMA and at KIPP students receive personalized attention during classes and after they graduate to continue their educations and find career opportunities. UMA’s student support services include dedicated teams from Academic Coaching, Learner Services and Career Services.

In addition to these services, UMA’s students benefit from technical support services available 24 hours a day, seven days a week as well as a wide range of on-demand learning resources through UMA’s Blackboard website, mobile app and extensive virtual library.
