What We Do

Mission: Partnering with youth, their families and the community to enrich the lives of students with the joy of learning, the skills for success and inspiration to realize their dreams.

Inequities built into our education system — like the uneven distribution of resources — create barriers for some students to access the knowledge and skills every student needs to be prepared for life after high school.

Horizons is a transformational, community-centered approach proven to close the opportunity gap for children and help them achieve their goals in school and life.

Our project-based educational model uses a blend of high-quality academics with cultural enrichment and confidence-building activities like swimming, arts, and sports. In small classes led by professional educators, students dive into a rich culturally inclusive and responsive curriculum emphasizing literacy and STEAM, and benefit from the incorporation of social-emotional and whole-child teaching practices.
