Aim High Programs are comprehensive developmental summer programs designed to assist high school students who are first generation and/or low SES students in pursuing STEM majors. Both programs address three core elements: Personal/Social, Career, and Academic development as it relates to Career and College Readiness. Through courses in science and technology, service learning, leadership development, group counseling, workshops/ guest speakers, and various on and off-campus activities students were able to develop a satisfaction and understanding of life on campus, as well as, set personal and career/ college goals.

Senior Aim High completed its third year of implementation. This 4 –week residential program is designed for 40 rising high school seniors from the southern five counties. The program is a joint venture between the College of Education and Rowan’s Camden Campus and is funded by the Commission of Higher Education through a College Access Grant. The total awarded amount since 2011 is $ 467,620.
