about horizons

Horizons at SCH offers a high-quality, hands-on learning experience outside of the traditional school year to support academic achievement and healthy youth development. Now in its fourth year, the program serves over 60 rising first, second, third, and fourth-grade students. Horizons students experience a full day of learning opportunities, including literacy, math, STEM, and enrichment activities such as field trips, hiking, and instructional swimming. Students also receive breakfast, lunch, and snacks at no cost.

The Henry H. Houston Elementary School in Mt. Airy and Springside Chestnut Hill Academy established a partnership in the summer of 2021 to bring a branch of the nationally recognized Horizons program to the SCH campus.

Established in 1964, Horizons is a national network of 60+ tuition-free summer programs that deliver high-quality academic and enrichment support for students from under-resourced communities. Students begin Horizons the summer after Kindergarten and return each summer through 8th Grade.
