Aim High, a nationally recognized, award winning organization at the forefront of the summer learning movement, is seeking a dynamic and inspiring leader to be its CEO.

Aim High was founded on the conviction that every young person, regardless of life circumstance, has the right to a quality education that opens doors to the larger world. Launched in 1986 with fifty pioneering San Francisco students, Aim High has since expanded to eighteen sites serving over 2,500 deserving middle schoolers throughout the Bay Area, Napa and Tahoe-Truckee. Along the way, this award-winning summer enrichment program has engaged and empowered over fifteen thousand low-income middle schoolers to aim high for high school, aim high for college and aim high for life. One notable testimonial to Aim High’s success is that, over these thirty-five years, 98% of its alumni/ae have graduated from high school and gone on to college. Another is that, today, over a third of Aim High teachers are Aim High graduates!

Aim High is committed to closing the opportunity and achievement gaps in Northern California through its transformative summer learning program. We envision every middle school student having access to joyful summer learning, inspired and innovative teachers and the support they need to propel them to success and fulfillment in school and life.  For a more comprehensive understanding of Aim High, please visit
