Achieve partners with families from Boston to empower motivated students to challenge the opportunity gap. By providing transformative academic programming and enriching experiences from middle school through the first year of college, we foster enduring confidence and agency in our scholars through a supportive and joyful community.
In addition to the full-time Achieve staff, the summer instructional staff increases to 25 top teachers from both private and public schools in Massachusetts, including the Boston Public Schools system. Academic classes are taught by a veteran teacher with at least three years of teaching experience, and a teaching assistant. During the school year, Nobles student tutors volunteer their time on Saturday mornings to co-teach program sessions.
Achieve students are motivated, resilient and thoughtful young people who grow into extraordinary leaders.
All Achieve scholars come from Boston Public schools and must qualify for free or reduced lunch (according to federal guidelines).
Currently, 30 Boston public schools are represented from Roxbury, Dorchester, Mattapan, Jamaica Plain, Hyde Park, West Roxbury, Roslindale, Charlestown and East Boston.
99% are students of color. 89% of students will be the first in their family to go to college. 68% of students speak another language at home.
