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.

Aim High has served 9,000 students in the last 30 years, and in the next five, we're prepared to serve 6,000 more. Our new strategic plan significantly expands our footprint in the Greater Bay Area by opening five new campuses over the next five years. In addition, we're preparing to scale up our teacher development efforts, and we're expanding opportunities for students and alumni.
