We advance educational equity by building long-term partnerships with students, families, communities, and schools to cultivate experiences outside of school that inspire the joy of learning.
Our vision is a future in which every child thrives intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically.
By establishing strong bonds with our students, we strive to make every student feel valued and heard, building self-confidence and self-esteem, the foundation for pursuing a choice-filled life.
We offer a six-week summer enrichment program and year-round programming that focuses on the whole child through academic skill-building, social-emotional support, health and wellness activities, and much more. In communities where out-of-school time learning programs are not readily available, students receive approximately 6,000 hours of extra learning by the 6th grade.
Students begin in kindergarten and stay through high school, building necessary life-skills along the way. We commit to offering small class sizes, mental health support, a blend of STEAM and literacy programming, engaging field trips, and leadership training within a project-based curriculum structure.
Nationwide, 97% of Horizons graduates complete high school, and 91% enter post-secondary education, compared to 78.3% of low-income high school graduates as a whole.
