Summer break is here, but learning shouldn’t end after the last school bell of the year. This is why Robins Foundations partners with organizations like Higher Achievement in supporting middle schoolers from underserved communities after the school day and during the summer – so they can excel in top-ranked high schools and beyond.
Higher Education recognizes that talent doesn’t always go hand in hand with opportunity. They engage educators, community partners and citizens in mentoring and supporting children with resources during the most critical developmental years. During the summer, Higher Achievement not only continues to tutor students in core areas so they can shine during the next school year, they also enable learning outside of the classroom with weekly field trips and a college visit.
Backed by 40 years of experience and a list of impressive stats and awards, Higher Achievement has a track record of developing engaged, well-prepared students who succeed in school, despite all odds.
As we work toward improving the lives of children and families in Richmond, we’ll continue to work with organizations like Higher Achievement to close the opportunity gap.
