Aim High creates life-changing opportunities during the summer and beyond. Our community:

  • Nurtures the promise and potential of middle school students from low-income neighborhoods
  • Prepares students for high school, setting them on the path to college and future success
  • Inspires the next generation of teachers and educational leaders


How We Do It:

Summer and middle school matter. When students are engaged and supported during these transitions, they have the confidence and resilience to succeed. Aim High guides students through these pivotal periods by blending academics and enrichment into an engaging tuition-free summer program.


Since 1986, Aim High has offered under-resourced middle school students a free life-changing summer program that focuses on academics and enrichment. We intervene at a critical stage in young peoples’ lives—when identities are in flux and trajectories are undecided—and provides them with the academic and social support they need to successfully transition to high school and stay on the path to college. Our program empowers youth with a positive classroom experience that fosters a love of learning, develops academic skill sets, nurtures a sense of belonging, and expands horizons.
