We’re Growing!

For the first time in Higher Achievement’s history, we are simultaneously expanding to four new achievement centers in three cities! As some of you heard at your local Green Apple Awards, we’re opening new centers in DC, Pittsburgh, and Richmond this summer.

We have a goal of doubling the number of scholars we serve by 2019. Each of these schools have a demonstrated need for our program and have school leadership that is aligned to our goal of academic achievement and committed to helping us measure our program effectiveness.

For more information on each of the communities where we are expanding, please visit our blog posts for: Brookland in DC, Sheraden in Pittsburgh, the Fan in Richmond, and Henrico just outside of Richmond.

This expansion is made possible thanks to the support of:

Thank you Expansion

We invite you to join us in this exciting period of growth by enrolling a scholar, becoming a mentor, or donating resources.

Thank you to everyone who made this possible!
