Attention: The 2015 Aim High Application is closed. High school students in the class of 2017 should check here in February 2016 for the next round of the application process.
This summer, forty high-school seniors from New Jersey will participate at Rutgers–Camden for three weeks as part of the Aim High Academy (AHA). AHA is a free, summer, residential program that will prepare and motivate students to attend and succeed in college.
Participants will move in to the Rutgers–Camden dormitories on July 12th, 2015 and immediately begin a rigorous academic and college readiness schedule. The daily program will include college-level writing and math courses,
SAT preparation taught by the Princeton Review, college and career readiness seminars, and much more.
Students will also make visits to colleges and universities in the region. Last year they explored schools in Central New Jersey, Philadelphia and Washington D.C.. On Saturdays, students will attend outdoor team-building activities in Fairmont Park in Philadelphia led by Outward Bound.
As part of the Aim High Academy, students will integrate technology into their studies using tablet computers. Participants will receive an iPad upon successful completion of the program.
The Aim High Academy's three-week program will conclude with a closing ceremony on Friday, July 31st, 2015.
