KIPP Cooper Norcross Academy Hosts Family Back to School Night at Adventure Aquarium


On Tuesday, KIPP Cooper Norcross Academy and The Cooper Foundation welcomed over 100 kindergarten students and their families to Family Back to School Night at the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, N.J.

While our young students enjoyed aquarium exhibits, including Rivers of the World and the Ocean and Shark Realms, parents and teachers had an opportunity to get to know each other over dinner.

The KIPP Cooper Norcross Academy is the state’s first renaissance public school and was created as a partnership among KIPP New Jersey, one of the most renowned national networks of free, open-enrollment college preparatory public charter schools, The Cooper Foundation, the charitable arm of Cooper University Health Care, and the Norcross Foundation. KIPP Cooper Norcross Academy’s new building is set to open before the 2015-2016 school year.
