Horizons' Summer Learning Program Transforms Lives

We provide academic support to ensure a brighter future for our promising students.

Our 2019 Summer program is off to a great start!


Host Schools

The Kent School, The Gunston School and Washington College is hosting our summer program this year. Teachers are using assessment data to plan engaging activities that meet the academic needs of our students.



Students began on June 24th and their last day will be August 1st.  They will participate in a variety of field trips, hands-on learning activities and character lessons.


Swimming Program

Our swimming program is at Camp Pecometh this year.  Students in the Kent School program  swim on Tuesdays and Fridays.  Students in the Gunston program swim on Mondays and Wednesdays.

About Us

Horizons of Kent and Queen Anne's offers a tuition-free, academic and enrichment program serving low-income, public school students on the campuses of The Gunston School in Centreville, Kent School in Chestertown, and Washington College in Chestertown. It provides a summer learning program for students in grades PreK-8 and a high school mentoring program for alumni of the summer program to keep them on track to graduate with a plan for a successful future.



Summer Learning Program


Six Weeks of Happiness

For six weeks in early summer, Horizons students are taught by skilled and nurturing educational professionals in small classes that are academically  and culturally diverse. The children who come to the program are recommended by teachers and counselors at their public elementary or middle school. 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 performing at or above grade level. 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.

High School Mentoring Program


Support to Graduation

Alumni of our summer program are eligible to receive one-to-one mentoring services during their high school years to help keep them on track for graduation with a plan for future success.  The students and their mentors meet throughout the school year to talk about future goals, discuss career opportunities, and work through learning challenges.  This valuable program is funded by  a Kent Youth grant, a Kudner Fund of the Mid-Shore Community Foundation  grants as well as through generous donations from friends of Horizons.

Horizons of Kent and Queen Anne's offers  support to students from PreK through grade 12.  Horizons is committed to inspiring, building, and transforming students to ensure that they will enjoy a bright future.
