Now Enrolling for Horizons Newark Academic Club School Year Program!

Who We Serve

Horizons Newark serves public school students from all of Newark’s five wards and the surrounding communities from Kindergarten - 8th grade. Of those who participate:

100% qualify for free or reduced lunch, 100% are identified by teachers as benefitting from long-term engagement with Horizons, and 2/3 begin Horizons at or below grade level in English Language Arts and/or math

We work in close partnership with Newark-based schools, communities, and organizations to provide students and families with resources and opportunities for success. Horizons students and families are engaged with us year-round and return each summer for our hallmark six-week program, plus special programming throughout the school year, creating a close-knit, supportive learning community.
