Mission, Vision, and Values


Our mission is to help high-achieving underserved middle school students by pairing them with an experienced high school mentor that will prepare and guide them through the NYC high school application process. We seek to address the growing problem of inequity in admissions that disproportionally impacts minorities, low-income families, single-family households, immigrants, and other underrepresented groups with students helping students.


By providing mentors for the unnoticed hard working middle school students of NYC, we aim to change the narrative of inequality in high school admissions. Helping one family at a time, we want to see a future where all determined middle school students can be members of the best high schools regardless of their circumstance or background.


Because the high school admissions process is complex, we have values that we uphold to ensure that every child and parent receives the guidance they deserve.
