Practice "mixed voice"
Practice singing scales in a "mixed voice," which is a balance between the chest voice – the normal speaking voice, and the head voice – a much higher register.
Visualize the note you are trying to reach in your head. Don't listen to the music or your voice. Instead, go by feel to reach a desired pitch.
Use correct muscles
Use the correct muscles for hitting high notes, which are the larynx and surrounding muscles, not the throat muscles used for swallowing.
Practice often, at different times of the day, and practice yodeling. Start with a note at the top of your middle range and go up in half steps until you max out.
Lie down and practice singing with books on your abdomen to show air going in and out, or stand with your back against a wall to emphasize correct use of your diaphragm.
Consider a vocal coach
Consider training with a vocal coach, who will not only train you to sing high notes safely but also help you reach your singing goals.
