We believe all children--regardless of income--should have the same opportunity to realize their potential. For 25 years, Horizons of Kent and Queen Anne's has helped close the opportunity gap for children with limited economic means in Kent and Queen Anne's Counties. Our transformative, community-based approach improves academic performance, builds lasting connections, and puts our students on a path to success in school and life.
By donating to Horizons, you'll help underserved kids realize a brighter future. During these uncertain times, your help is needed more now than ever. Our students need resources to help them navigate distance learning opportunities that are now the norm with the coronavirus pandemic. We have just completed our Horizons at Home summer program which included providing each student with a learning toolkit, access to instructional videos, virtual fieldtrips, as well as Let's Talk and social-emotional lessons. At the end of the program, 100% of the responses that we received from our end of program survey indicated that they would like Horizons to continue to provide support during the upcoming school year too. We have developed a plan to offer monthly Zoom meetings and ongoing support in mathematics using online learning apps to address this need. We are excited to be able to offer this extra layer of support to our amazing students, but we need funding to help launch the program.
Please join us in supporting our aspiring future leaders and keep them on the path to achieve their goals and realize their dreams for a brighter future. Together, we can make a difference.
INVEST in our children's future by MAKING A DONATION TODAY.
Horizons is thrilled to be offering an extra layer of support for our students during this very unusual year. In September, we began a program designed to help students in grades 1 through 8 with math skills through monthly virtual lessons, a math learning app, and weekly teacher office hours for targeted assistance. Students also will build STEM projects to keep them exploring and learning. The program will continue through April 2021.
We also are pleased to announce that we have restructured our high school program. Our new program is focused on career and college readiness as well as leadership skills. The high school students are participating in meetings twice a month to keep them on track to graduate on time with a plan for personal fulfillment. Our students will be participating in a leadership book study project as well as a community service project.
We thank the United Way of Kent County, the Kent County Economic Development Office, and the Rural Maryland Council for their help in making these programs possible.

For six weeks in early summer, Horizons students are inspired by skilled educational professionals in small group settings that are academically and culturally diverse. After a healthy breakfast each day, children focus on targeted reading and mathematics lessons. The curriculum is student-centered and hands-on to maximize student engagement and retention. Our teachers tailor their instruction to address individual challenges, so the children can return to their classrooms in the fall ready for success. Afternoons are filled with swimming and water safety instruction, various on-campus enrichment activities, and field trips that teach students about their communities and the world.
