About Us

High Achievement's mission is to develop critical academic habits and attitudes in vulnerable middle school children ('scholars') from underserved inner city neighborhoods in order to improve their grades, standardized tests scores, and attendance, and increase their educational opportunities through acceptance and scholarships to private, parochial, and public high school programs.

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.
