Welcome

Horizons is a transformational, community-centered program proven to close the opportunity and achievement gaps for students in under-resourced communities. A national network of locally vested programs, Horizons offers a high-quality learning experience outside of the traditional school year that supports academic achievement and healthy youth development.

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 ability. 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. And it works. Once a student is enrolled in Horizons, anything seems possible.
