Phillips Academy v. KIPP: Phillips Academy


Phillips Academy of Andover, Mass. is a boarding school whose alumni include President Bush and Humphrey Bogart (!). 

KIPP: Philips Academy is a charter school in New Orleans, part of the Knowledge is Power Program network of free charter schools targeted at ‘under resourced’ communities.

Phillips of Andover is not tuition free and is not targeted at under resourced communities (but does provide financial aid and states that financial need should not discourage applicants).

This is a 2003 newspaper article reporting on a visit by a Phillips Andover official to the ‘KIPP Academy.’

Phillips of Andover has apparently protested KIPP’s use of the Phillips name .
