At Horizons, we INSPIRE MINDS, BUILD COMMUNITIES, and TRANSFORM LIVES for local children with limited economic means.
We believe all children--regardless of income--should have the same opportunity to realize their potential. But sadly, too many children fail to get the start in life they need. Instead, these children face uncertain futures marked by truancy, high drop-out rates, eventual unemployment--and worse.
HORIZONS CHANGES ALL OF THAT. For over 24 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 these children on a path to success in school and life.
By donating to Horizons, you'll help at-risk 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. With your support, we will provide our students with exploration kits containing STEM projects, literacy activities, a personal copy of our One School, One Book selection, a Horizons T-shirt, learning supplies, and letters of encouragement from beloved Horizons staff to let them know that we believe in them and their ability to overcome the challenges that the pandemic has created in their lives. We plan to create video tutorials and messages to help students navigate these challenging times. We have suspended the registration fees this year as a way to lend a hand to our families that have been greatly impacted by business closures and loss of employment opportunities.
Please join us in supporting our aspiring future leaders and keep them on the path to achieve their goals and keep their dream for a brighter future alive and well. Together, we can make a difference.

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 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.
