Horizons Atlanta provides high-quality, tuition-free summer enrichment programs in partnership with ten host institutions, offering over 1,500 student seats in 2023. Our scholars attend a 6-week, full-day summer program on the campuses of independent schools, colleges, and universities across metro Atlanta. In small classes led by professional teachers, our students dive into rich curricula focused on literacy and STE(A)M. Swimming and other confidence-boosting activities break down barriers to success, expose children to new opportunities, and promote healthy youth development. On average, Horizons scholars achieve 2-3 months academic growth in reading and math and return to school in the fall prepared and confident.
