For fourteen years, this successful summer program has enabled educational opportunities for children from financially disadvantaged families. Horizons allows students from kindergarten through eighth grade to experience academic enrichment opportunities with Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) programs, certified reading specialists, project-based learning projects, community field trips, and swimming instruction.
Horizons Hampton Roads is offered through a private-public partnership. 350 students from 51 different Norfolk, Portsmouth and Virginia Beach public schools attend the program on the campuses of independent schools: Norfolk Collegiate, Portsmouth Catholic Regional, and Chesapeake Bay Academy. Horizons Hampton Roads is a local affiliate of Horizons National.
