Most Horizons high school students are enrolled in large, sometimes overwhelming, public high schools where they might easily fall through the cracks. They are often under the radar of their busy guidance offices. Through our academic coaching program, we ensure that our students receive the support that they need to navigate successfully though high school and graduate college-ready. Were it not for Horizons, many of these students would not fully understand their post-high school options and would not be prepared for higher education.
Students must "graduate" from the Summer Program by completing their 8th grade summer in order to participate in our High School Program. The goal of the High School Program is to assure that all students are college ready by graduation and the program includes weekly academic coaching, SAT Prep classes, college tours, and college counseling.
