Higher Learning, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, provided active educational programming for youth, ages 11-17, in the Maryland area.

After six years of providing unique, affordable, academic opportunities to students, Higher Learning will no longer be offering direct educational services. 

Our programs armed students with the skills, experiences, and habits of thinking that are ultimately expected of them, but are part of no standard school curriculum. We worked to promote ethical, socially conscious leadership and action.

Central to the program's mission were opportunities for local and global travel to which youth without financial means would not ordinarily have access.

Click the "read more" link below for details about our last year of programming, the changes, transitions, and farewells, and the opportunities we can still provide for students from 2015-2016.

Thanks to everyone who participated and supported Higher Learning since we began in 2009!
