Higher Achievement Pittsburgh, held after school and during the summer, operates two achievement centers serving over 100 5th, 6th and 7th graders from schools in Pittsburgh’s Homewood and Hill District neighborhoods. Higher Achievement is focusing on these two neighborhoods because of the legacy of need and the great opportunity to partner with long-standing community programs.

Higher Achievement Pittsburgh’s scholars primarily are attending Title I schools with 90 percent of students eligible for free and reduced-price meals. Ninety-nine percent of the student populations are students of color, and 45 percent of the families live below the poverty line.
