About Higher Achievement

Location:

1500 Union Avenue, Suite 2600, Baltimore, MD 21211, US

Mission Statement

Talent is everywhere, but opportunity is not. We envision a world where all students' potential and promise is realized, regardless of their circumstances. Higher Achievement closes the opportunity gap during the pivotal middle school years. By leveraging the power of communities, Higher Achievement’s proven model provides a rigorous year-round learning environment, caring role models, and a culture of high expectations, resulting in college-bound scholars with the character, confidence, and skills to succeed.

Description

Higher Achievement is a non-profit organization that helps underserved middle-school students, referred to as "scholars", improve their grades, attendance, and standardized test scores, culminating in acceptance to top high schools in Baltimore. Higher Achievement delivers year-round, rigorous academic programming that yields outstanding outcomes.

During the scholars' four years in Higher Achievement, they study social-justice oriented curricula; work with mentors weekly; self select enriching elective courses; and participate in academic contests, university stays, and academic field trips. Higher Achievement's strong network of mentors is instrumental to the success of its program.
