ABOUT AIM HIGH

Grounded in a welcoming community where every kid feels seen and supported, Aim High gives students the confidence to succeed in high school and beyond. Aim High also fosters a supportive professional community in which educators - from aspiring to experienced - grow personally and professionally.
Aim High staff are dedicated to making a positive difference in the world. We are a team of collaborative, creative and mission-driven individuals who respect and encourage each other. Guided by the Aim High CORE values of community, opportunity, respect, and high expectations, we work together every day to narrow the opportunity gaps in Northern California.

Site Directors (SDs) oversee all aspects of an Aim High summer school campus to ensure high quality implementation of the six-week, academic enrichment and youth development program, ensuring that the Core Values (CORE) of Community, Opportunity, Respect and High Expectations are brought to life for students and staff alike. Campus size ranges from 70 to 160 rising 6th through 9th grade students. SDs also have responsibilities during the academic year, typically working 5-10 hours a month (Aug-May). SDs, with the help of the Central Office, are responsible for hiring, training and overseeing faculty, typically between 15 to 30 staff members, along with some student recruitment responsibilities and all admissions decisions. All Aim High sites have two Co-Directors, and therefore must work together as an effective leadership team. Site Directors report directly to the Program Directors and VP of Programs.
**All Site Directors must join Aim High through our Leadership Institute. You can find more information about that program here.
