Horizons Newark Giving Day is May 15, 2024!

Our Approach

Working in partnership with families and the local community, Horizons serves K-8 students of varying academic abilities. Horizons Newark is committed to the development of the whole child through experiences that build problem-solving, foster awareness of community responsibility, instill respect for oneself and others, and encourage a life-long interest in learning.

The Horizons program takes this framework and creates a community-integrated 6-week summer program and school-year programs to achieve its goals.

Horizons’ goals are to:

Prevent decline in students' school performance, improve students' school attendance, build students' social and interpersonal skills, raise students' educational expectations and aspirations, encourage parents to become involved in their child's education and activities, build self-esteem, resourcefulness, and sound judgement
