Aim High

Aim High expands opportunities for low-income middle school youth in Northern California through a tuition-free, multi-year summer program. More than 2,300 students from San Francisco, Oakland, Napa, Marin, Tahoe, and the Peninsula join us annually.

Aim High provides tuition-free summer programs for middle school students in San Francisco, Oakland, Redwood City, East Palo Alto, Marin City, San Rafael and Tahoe/Truckee, CA. At Aim High, students take morning classes in Math, Science, Humanities and Issues & Choices, and fun afternoon classes in theater, dance, sports, the great outdoors, and more. 9th grade students at Aim High spend a week at Aim High's Environmental Home in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area or take part in outdoor education trips in the East and South Bay.

Aim High stands with our DREAMers. Read our statement below and find a list of available resources here:
