Pittsburgh Olympics of the Mind on KDKA!

On Tuesday, August 2, Pittsburgh’s scholars from the Hill District, Homewood, and West End Achievement Centers participated in the 4th Annual Olympics of the Mind, sponsored this year by the UPMC Center for Engagement and Inclusion.

The spot aired on the CBS affiliate KDKA news broadcast and really captured how much fun our scholars had while learning this summer. Scholars competed in Math Bowl, Curriculum Quest, Team-Building Field Games, Spirit, Banner, and Chant competitions. Shout-out to our volunteers from UPMC and PwC who helped the contest be full of spirit, respect, excellence, and collaboration.

Higher Achievement’s Summer Academy is a great way to fight the summer slide and prepare students for success in the coming year!
