“We run activities in the classroom that push the strongest and most motivated students, but also provide the necessary support and scaffolding to students who need it. This focused one-on-one instruction produces notable improvements in not only the studentsskills, but also in their self-confidence.”

—Achieve Teacher


Potential. You’ve got it. Your parents know it and so do your teachers. So, how do you fulfill it? The answer is simple: you supplement your Boston Public Schools education with a rigorous program that will help you Achieve the promise of educational success.

According to the National Summer Learning Association, under-resourced students lose about two months of grade-level equivalency in mathematical computation and more than two months in reading achievement, while their middle-class peers demonstrate summer learning gains. More than half of the achievement gap can be explained by unequal access to summer learning opportunities.

At Achieve, we close that gap. Quickly. In fact, on average, our students jump ahead three months in math and reading after just six weeks in the program. And, that’s just the starting place for what we help students Achieve ….
