The Aspire Program at Hathaway Brown School

About The Aspire Program at Hathaway Brown School

The Aspire Program of Hathaway Brown School is a tuition-free academic and leadership program. Founded in 2002, Aspire targets motivated and high-achieving girls who are limited in opportunity because of low family income and lack of exposure to higher education.

Over the course of a three-year commitment during middle school, Aspire girls participate in a variety of leadership-building activities in academic classes and exploratory workshops. Aspire increases a girl’s awareness and investment in her learning, leadership, and choices.

Aspire also offers high school and college students an introduction to teaching in an innovative environment. These young people work together with experienced educators to implement creative, engaging classes. Aspire develops their awareness of the components of a high-quality education, thereby leading them to be effective advocates for education and consider teaching as a career.
