Enroll or refer a student today


Heights isn’t about who fits in — it’s about who benefits. We work to give every Black, Brown, and first-gen student more opportunity to succeed in the classroom, at college, and every day in their careers.

Help a student choose their future

We welcome families to enroll their middle- and high-school age youth, and we work with teachers and school staff who want to nominate students they know. Our programs help students engage better with academics and understand their unique pathways to success.
