Aim High is the largest free academic summer program in the Bay Area with 3 sites in Oakland. This 5-week tuition-free program offers fun, engaging, hands-on learning in math, science and humanities; enrichment activities in sports, arts, culture, technology, and much more; plus events and field trips that create opportunities for middle school students to engage and be inspired. Aim High is looking for motivated and committed 5th and 6th graders, as well as select 7th and 8th graders to attend our program at one of our Bay Area locations.

English, Chinese, and Spanish language speakers are supported.

All campuses have trained social workers on staff to provide behavioral and social support for any student who needs it.

Aim High is offered at no cost to students and their families. We raise funds from individuals, private foundations, corporate giving programs, and government grants to support our program. We are highly cost-effective, with a per-student cost of only $2,000. Learn how to donate if you’re interested in providing students with a valuable summer experience.
