Summer Learning That Fuels Lifelong Success
Aim High is a five-week summer enrichment program for rising 6th – 9th graders from low-income communities across the greater Bay Area. Offered at no cost to students and their families for up to four summers, Aim High helps middle schoolers build academic confidence, discover a love of learning, and develop the skills they need to thrive in high school and in life.
A Different Kind of Classroom
At Aim High, small classes and nurturing teachers ensure that every student has a voice and the space to realize their unique potential. From that supportive footing, students explore fun project-based activities—storytelling, debating, dissecting, cooking, performing—that capture their curiosity and spark a lifelong love of learning.
