DC Metro "Higher Achievement is family. I feel really lucky to be able to come here. Because of Higher Achievement, I know if I believe in myself I can achieve anything. "
Kevian, Age 13
In 1975 Greg Gannon, a local teacher, founded Higher Achievement to bridge the opportunity gap for youth in Washington, DC. Over the past 40 years, we have propelled more than 10,000 middle school students to success.
Our scholars are driven and talented. We are committed to providing them with the resources, opportunities, and encouragement they deserve so that they can become the scientists and engineers, poets and journalists, artists and titans of industry that they dream of being.
