Program areas at Higher Achievement Program

Higher achievement operates year-round achievement centers in four cities that offer over 650 hours annually of rigorous academic enrichment to children during the most critical time in a child's development: middle school. Centers operate year-round during critical "gap" periods when children are not in school: after school and in the summer. Children enroll in 5th or 6th grade and dedicate three to four years after school and summer to stay on track for college. Higher achievement cultivates talent in middle school scholars and connects them with the opportunity to attend college-preparatory high school programs. Ultimately, 95% of alumni graduate from high school approximately twice the rates of their peers.
