The Aim High Academy at Rutgers–Camden

This summer, forty high-school seniors from South 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 6th and immediately begin the 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 participate in college visits to colleges and universities in the region. Last year they visited Central Jersey, Philadelphia and Washington D.C.. On Saturdays, students will attend outdoor team-building activities in Fairmont Park in Philadelphia led by Outward Bound.

The Aim High Academy's three-week program will conclude with graduation on Friday, July 25th.
