Horizons of Kent and Queen Anne’s strives to help disadvantaged children take charge of their lives and realize their full potential. Our six-week summer learning program strengthens students' academic performance, builds their self-confidence and nurtures citizenship skills.
The Horizons educational model has been confirmed by recent research as the most effective approach to summer learning programs. The national results, as well as our own local findings, have increased students’ positive attitudes toward school and improved attendance and graduation rates.
We serve a diverse group of students with limited income. Students are chosen by their teachers and guidance counselors to participate in the Horizons summer program. Selected students show promising potential but face challenges caused by financial insecurity or stress at home.
