Reach for a Dream

Aim High closes the opportunity gap for under-resourced middle school youth by providing them with a free summer learning program. Summers at Aim High are rigorous, enriching and joyful. Students come back again and again, with many of our graduates returning to teach at Aim High.

After 30 summers of service to the community, we are the Bay Area’s leading and largest provider of summer learning opportunities for middle school students.
