Horizons is a nonprofit that partners with public, independent, and charter schools, colleges, and universities to create out-of-school academic, enrichment, and social-emotional learning programs for students from pre-kindergarten through high school.

About Horizons at Francis Parker School

We believe all children, regardless of income, should have the opportunity to realize their potential.

Horizons programs help make that happen. All across the country, children from under-resourced communities are discovering the joy of learning, skills for success, and inspiration to achieve their dreams.

Students begin their Horizons journey as early as pre-Kindergarten and return year after year through middle school or high school. It’s a long-term and deep engagement with students who come to us with a broad range of academic abilities. Given this opportunity, Horizons students thrive.

In the project-based Horizons approach, kids “learn by doing.” They become inspired as they explore reading, math, science, music, theater, art, swimming, and other activities that cultivate creativity and leadership. Our program supports students in setting their own academic and social-emotional goals and provides opportunities for them to build the skills needed to reach those goals. And it works. Once a student is enrolled in Horizons, anything seems possible.
