All children deserve the opportunity to Aim Higher
That simple premise serves as the core principle of the Aim Higher Foundation, which believes that Catholic schools can make a profound difference in the lives of children and in the well-being of our communities. Catholic school students shine in an environment that combines academic rigor and character development with individual attention.
The Aim Higher Foundation is an independently operated, non-profit organization committed exclusively to the betterment of children through Catholic schools in the greater twin cities metro area through focused giving in three areas:
Student-Based Tuition Assistance: Making Excellence Available to All Students
High test scores and graduation rates confirm that Catholic school students excel regardless of income level, race or ethnicity. The Aim Higher Foundation offers student-based tuition assistance to ensure that all families have an opportunity to choose Catholic school for their child. By providing financial assistance, the foundation seeks to give all students access to Catholic education’s culture of achievement.
Grants Supporting Excellence in Teaching and Administration
Educators sustain and strengthen Catholic schools by their dedication to helping all students reach their potential. The Aim Higher Foundation is committed to supporting these professionals by making grants available to encourage excellence in teaching and school administration.
Grants to Schools For Innovative Programming
Catholic schools are widely known for delivering academic excellence with great efficiency, often operating at nearly half the per student cost of public schools. High expectations, small class sizes, and close working relationships with families all contribute to Catholic education’s success. The Aim Higher Foundation will build upon Catholic education’s record of success by making grants for innovation available to individual schools that are leaders in providing academically rigorous, values-based programming for the 21st century.
The Aim Higher Foundation helped a struggling single parent who works two jobs with the extra financial help she needed to keep her two children at a Catholic school.
GRANT INFORMATION FOR FAMILIES AND SCHOOLS
The Aim Higher Foundation supports Catholic education’s tradition of excellence and strives to make the life-changing experience of attending Catholic school accessible to all students. We again utilized a transitional grant application process to determine awards of tuition assistance in the 2013-2014 school year.
