Program Description: 

The foundation of Aim High is an intensive, engaging and challenging five-week summer school program for middle school students from low-income families. Students join after 5th or 6th grade, and participate for three or four consecutive summers. Students graduate from Aim High in the summer prior to their freshman year in high school. Aim High works in close partnership with the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA), the Exploratorium, as well as partner schools, school districts, and universities Middle school is a crucial juncture in making a difference in young people's lives and the purpose of Aim High is to reach students at this critical crossroads and propel them towards success in high school and college. Research has shown that sustained intervention during the middle school years goes a long way to keeping students engaged in their education, resulting in lower high school drop-out rates and higher rates of college matriculation.
