Horizons National is an award-winning, tuition-free, academic and enrichment program serving children from low-income communities on the campuses of independent schools, colleges, and universities across the country. Our mission is to improve the life trajectory of students from low-income families by instilling in them the joy of learning, the skills for success, and the inspiration to realize their dreams. 

The opportunity gap Horizons works to close is becoming an even bigger resource gap. Odds were against Horizons youth in the best of times. This year, they will likely face even more challenges – not just summer learning loss, but potentially a whole semester’s worth. What will the fall season bring for our schools? How can students catch up from all they will have lost to the COVID-19 pandemic? These are all questions we are working to answer on behalf of Horizons students and their families. 

Through both academics and social/emotional learning, when this is all over (and until then), Horizons will be best suited to close the gaps caused or widened by COVID-19 school closures. 

Horizons builds a strong sense of community. 

We make a long-term commitment to our students and families and provide ongoing support throughout the school year to stay connected. This is now more important than ever as Horizons programs work with families to meet immediate needs – such as ensuring they have resources at home to actively participate in distance learning. And it will continue as students and families eventually make the difficult transition back to school when schools re-open – from re-learning content to focusing on social/emotional learning and development.

About the Organization

HORIZONS NATIONAL is a non-profit that believes all children should have the opportunity to realize their potential.

But today, students from under-resourced communities are six times more likely to drop out of high school and fewer than one third will enroll in college; without educational opportunity, there is no economic mobility.

For students from under-resourced communities, HORIZONS provides proven, high-quality academic and enrichment programs, from Pre-K through high school.

By connecting with a long-term, stable community of teachers and peers, HORIZONS students improve their reading and math skills, learn to swim, gain confidence, and 97% graduate from high school on time.

Each new HORIZONS program we open, dedicated to closing gaps in achievement and opportunity, creates a better future for the students, families, and communities we serve.
