Serving Children from Norwalk and Stamford


Horizons provides more than 400 under-resourced students, primarily from Norwalk and Stamford, with a full year of academic and enrichment programming aimed at closing the achievement and opportunity gaps experienced by Fairfield County’s under-resourced students. Once enrolled in the program, the majority of students continue to participate through high school graduation. The program is anchored by a six-week intensive summer program serving kindergarten through 9th grade, and is supplemented by school year programming, including tutoring, academic coaching, college advising, caregiver and family programming, and a Super Saturday program. All of our programs are tuition-free. In addition, Horizons at NCCS has a newly established Alumni Association with over 300 members.

If a Horizons family has a concern about student performance at school, they can turn to our Family and Program Director, Nehemie Young, for help. She can help parents navigate the complicated process of securing appropriate testing and support for children, attend school meetings, and track students’ progress.
