Horizons offers a high-quality, hands-on summer learning experience outside of the traditional school year that supports academic achievement and healthy youth development. During the first year of Horizons at SCH, fourteen rising first-grade students were served. In summer 2022, thirty students in 1st and 2nd grades will be welcomed. Students are provided a full day of learning opportunities, including literacy, math, STEM projects, and enrichment activities such as field trips, hiking, and swimming. Students are also provided daily breakfast, lunch, and snacks at no cost.
