Student First. Hands-On. Campus Based.
High Jump Scholars is a tuition-free program with one-of-a-kind experiences, access to resources, and educational opportunities.

Building the Next Generation of Leaders.
At High Jump, we help learners develop the skills they need to thrive wherever they go. Our curriculum exposes students to culturally relevant literature, rigorous math instruction, and experiential learning to help them prepare for high school, college, and beyond.
Our 16:1 student-to-teacher ratio helps students thrive. Small class size means more one-on-one time with teachers to provide an emotionally supportive learning environment that’s more meaningful for students.
Scholars make new friends, gain meaningful experiences, and build confidence to follow their dreams. Interested in applying? Have more questions about how it works? Check out our program FAQs.
