Students & Their Families

Students join Horizons the summer before kindergarten and return to the program each year through 8th grade, building lasting relationships with their teachers and peers, and developing life skills essential for success. Special priority is given to enrolling siblings in the Horizons program in order to have the greatest impact within the family. We host events to engage students’ families and guardians in their learning processes.
