Welcome to the Reach High Scholars website!

Starting to think about college is like being on the outside of a big confusing maze. You are aiming for an uncertain goal in the center but there is a sense of being in the dark without a flashlight.

Hopefully, this website will break the process into manageable chunks. It is doing the job well if it opens new ideas for you, puts questions in your mind as well as answers and leads you to reach higher in your educational pursuits than you would have previously imagined possible.

The experience can be fun, exhilarating and empowering. You will be playing out the motto of the Reach High Scholars Program: controlling your destiny.



• The Reach High Scholars Program (“RHSP”) is an independent NH Nonprofit Corporation and an exempt organization under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code
• In past eight years, 31 students have gone to highly-competitive (top 3%) colleges
• Most of them have financial aid with small amounts of debt and need-based grants of up to $62,000 per annum that, over four years, will have a total value of over $3.5 million
• During 2011-2016, 6% of RHS graduates went to highly competitive colleges. Based on available information, only two NH high schools have done better
• Financial aid from Summer Enrichment partners (Brown, Dartmouth, Phillips Exeter and St. Paul’s) in past six years of $568,000 (over 30% of which was reimbursed by RHSP and supporters)
• Contributions from charitable institutions and individuals to RHSP and its summer partners of $206,000
• Of the 58 active participants in RHSP now attending or graduated from college, nearly all are:
  - on track to complete in four years;
  - excelling academically and many have better grades than they did at RHS;
  - graduating with debt of not more than $20-30,000; and
  - going on to excellent graduate programs and jobs.
