Since its inception, Horizons has been committed to serving the students who need us most. Two-thirds of our students are performing below grade-level when they are admitted to Horizons, with the balance performing at or above grade level.
Through our Tutoring Program, Horizons provides students with direct, individualized academic support all year long with a goal of empowering students to become academically self-sufficient. Educators have long recognized that, in addition to facilitating the mastery of academic skills, tutoring improves self-esteem and self-confidence, reduces dropout rates, and provides emotional support and positive role models. Horizons tutors often meet students in the schools they attend, and the program is provided at no cost to families.
