Aim High was founded on the belief that every student has the right to a quality education. In 1986, we launched at one site in San Francisco with just 50 students. Over the last 35 years, we’ve expanded across the Bay Area in every direction, as far as Napa and Tahoe-Truckee. Along the way, our transformative summer enrichment program has empowered thousands of middle schoolers from low-income neighborhoods, igniting their love of learning and yielding real results—97% of Aim High alumni graduate high school and go on to college.
A welcoming community where every kid feels seen and supported, Aim High gives students the confidence to succeed in high school and beyond.
Aim High creates life-changing opportunities during the summer and beyond. Our community:
Our CORE values capture a distinctive philosophy about education that influences our teachers, students, parents, and the community. Grounded in the belief that learning should be joyful, engaging, and challenging, these CORE values motivate our daily efforts to create brighter futures.
