As Horizons of Kent and Queen Anne’s concludes its 25th year, we are most grateful for the people who have helped make our program a success. As a direct result of their generosity, Horizons students continue to receive the tools they need to thrive in school and life. By providing a blend of academics, social/emotional support, health/wellness activities, field trips, and much more, Horizons of Kent and Queen Anne’s changes the life trajectory of our students, their families, and our community.
This year the pandemic presented many challenges for our students and their families. Because of people like you, Horizons was able to provide a virtual summer program as well as a school year program to keep our PreK-grade 8 students engaged, supported, and learning during this difficult time. We were thrilled to relaunch our high school program this fall to help our scholars prepare for graduation with a plan that will bring them future happiness. Horizons of Kent and Queen Anne’s introduces students to a world of possibilities and offers hope. Our scholars gain confidence as well as skills that will serve them for the rest of their lives.
To continue our important work, your financial support is vital. All gifts, no matter the size, will help our students live their best life. We hope you will support Horizons. We simply cannot do this work without you!

Changes to Charitable Giving Tax Deductions included in the
Coronavirus Aid, Relief, & Economic Security (CARES) Act
will allow taxpayers who don't itemize their deductions to now deduct
charitable contributions up to $300 on their tax return, a previously unavailable option.
People who make larger gifts will be able to deduct a much higher amount. An individual will be able to make a gift cash and deduct it up to 100 percent of their AGI for the year 2020. This provision could allow a person to make charitable gifts that eliminate his or her tax burden.

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 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 water safety instruction, various on-campus enrichment activities, and field trips that teach students about their communities and the world.
