9th Grade Summer

Ninth Grade Summer Program Is Back!

For Summer 2020, Horizons will be offering an optional 9th grade Summer Program to all our students entering 10th grade in the fall of 2020. The Horizons 9th grade Summer Program will allow our students to continue to nurture the positive social connections they have built with their Horizons peers throughout elementary and middle school. Our research has found that it is extremely important and beneficial to offer a safe and productive summer experience for 9th grade students, who may not have many productive program, internship or employment alternatives until they are 16. The 9th grade summer will include a focus on leadership development, career exploration, and service to community, and participating students will have the opportunity to take on leadership roles within the Horizons summer community. In addition, they will continue to be able to experience project-based learning, swimming and participation in sports, special events and specially designed field trips.
