The Story2 product has evolved over the past decade through our relationship with KIPP. Before we had software, we had an understanding of communication skills needed to thrive "to and through college" that flowed from KIPP.

There are big changes that will make college admissions more just and equitable. Story2 is committed to leading that change.
