OUR COMMUNITY

Aim High brings together staff, TAs and students from across the region. Our host institutions, John Burroughs, Priory, and Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School provide faculty and TAs, while our teachers come from both public and private schools in the St. Louis area.

Aim High students, the majority of whom live in the most economically challenged areas of St. Louis, are referred by their teachers for demonstrating academic potential. The median household income for the neighborhoods we serve ranges from $8,743 to $19,947. Aim High maintains partnerships with elementary schools in the Normandy, Ritenour, and St. Louis City school districts.
