Empowering students with partnerships
ABOUT US: PARTNERSHIPS
Schools, institutions, and corporate partners have come together to join Heights’ vision for Philadelphia youth.
With partners like Temple University, economic mobility is possible through opportunities including the Cecil B. Moore Scholars Program. This initiative creates an academic pathway for BIPOC and low-income students, providing college preparation and full tuition scholarships.
Philadelphia district school partners
Heights works hand in hand with educators as embedded staff at 23 Philly middle and high schools. Here, we lead school-wide college and career programming, 1-on-1 advising, equity training, grant/funding collaboration, and more.
Students targeted for high-engagement advising see additional programming and enrichment in grade-cohort groups. Students can also dual-enroll for college credit, receive tutoring, and explore internship opportunities.
