Aim High provides a nationally recognized, results-driven, free, summer enrichment program that teaches middle-school students from low income households the skills they need to succeed in high school and beyond.

  • Aim High at Home was designed to build community and connection (even while physically apart). Just as we have for the last 35 years, our virtual program made learning FUN and created a safe space for students to make new friends and try new things.

  • Aim High’s reimagined, tuition free program is possible because our donor community believes in Aim High. Your support ensures our future leaders stay connected, engaged and prepared to succeed in school and beyond. Thank you for nurturing their promise and potential.
