Overview--Our Organization's Work and Purpose

The MIMS Institute helps urban high school students, especially black males
with strong reading skills, successfully navigate the complex--and oftentimes
challenging--public education system.

Our purpose is to help students develop into competitive applicants to
America’s top national universities.

Our Award-Winning "Gather - Share - Connect - Build" Strategy:
  • Gather information about exceptional secondary and postsecondary
    academic opportunities from primary and reputable secondary sources,
  • Share this information with urban students "ready at this time" to
    Dream Big,
  • Connect students and families to local and national resources that Fuel
    Enthusiasm for Learning,
  • Build relationships that help Emerging Leaders reach the very top so
    that they can better serve others.
Why We Promote Academic Excellence During Daylight Hours

“All who have meditated on the art of governing mankind have been
convinced that the fate of empires depends on the education of youth.”
