Better Futures Begin in the 6th Grade

Aim High St. Louis is a tuition-free personal and academic enrichment program for motivated middle school students, most of whom come from challenging circumstances or environments. Over the course of their middle school years – rising 6th through 9th grades – our Achievers participate in a 5-week summer academic enrichment program, supplemented by monthly Saturday Sessions during the school year. Throughout our 25 plus years of partnership with St. Louis area families, we know that the majority of students who complete the program:

    • Grow academically  – more than 80% of our students show gains in their academic courses each summer
    • Graduate – more than 90% of Aim High achievers graduate, compared with just 60% of their local counterparts;*
    • Continue their education – Better than 75% of Aim High graduates continue their education after high school, in contrast to 54% of their non-attending peers.
