Mission Statement

Higher Achievement's rigorous afterschool and summer academic program closes the opportunity gap for middle school youth in at-risk communities. We provide a rigorous year-round learning environment, caring role models, and a culture of high expectations.

Higher Achievement mentors are role models with varied backgrounds. Some grew up in the same communities as the scholars they mentor; others grew up in more affluent communities. Some live in the city; others commute from the suburbs.

Together, mentors build a rich community that exposes Higher Achievement scholars to new perspectives and many forms of support. Our mentors, in turn, are rewarded with the experience of making a dramatic and clear impact on the lives of young people — and they are connected with a network of hundreds of professionals who are similarly invested in their communities.
