High Jump students invest over 350 annual instructional hours to study advanced coursework in math, science, writing, reading and the arts. That’s in addition to their daily school demands.


Students develop the confidence to thrive in a demanding academic setting through hard work and solid learning strategies.


99% of High Jump alumni go on to attend rigorous private and public college preparatory high schools and over 89% attend 4-year colleges. High Jump’s impact framework measures our success and guides our work.


High Jump students and families invest what they have–tenacity and time–to earn the opportunity to learn more and go farther. Help us match their investment today.
