Last April, a handful of upperclassmen at Bentonville High School banded together to help fellow students prepare for college entrance exams. Each teacher holds an ACT test score of 32 (or higher – Shahul Alam landed a perfect score last year), but the students who run Aspire Higher have a lot more in common than test scores.

These high achievers have encountered the red tape of taking advanced courses without prerequisites – and the cramming that comes along with it. Thanks to their parents, students and teachers, these students have gained a firm footing in the demands of AP-level coursework.

In an effort to empower other students, the Aspire Higher group spent the 2015 summer break teaching Northwest Arkansas students condensed, high-level courses (dubbed “crash courses”) in the following subjects:

  • AP Calculus AB
  • AP Calculus BC
  • AP Physics C: Mechanics
  • AP Chemistry
  • AP Biology


Aspire Higher is headquartered at 2618 SE J Street, Suite 10 in Bentonville. The group offers tutoring courses 100% free of charge.
