For more than 40 years, Higher Achievement has been building up the communities we serve, transforming lives with proven results. When a scholar commits to our program, achievement goes up, disengagement goes down, and one more student takes control of their future.
- 95 percent of our scholars graduate high school on-time and college-ready
- 63 percent of our scholars show positive grade impacts
- Our scholars gain an extra 48 school days in math and 30 school days in reading per year through participating in our program.
Take a look at our results
Higher Achievement has done the research. Through a random-controlled trial study, external researchers compared Higher Achievement scholars with a control group of program-eligible students to evaluate the long-term impact of our unique approach.
Our scholars’ success is proof of what our program can do: participation in Higher Achievement had a statistically significant effect in standardized test scores, certain types of family engagement, and placement in top high schools and avoidance of struggling high schools.
