MissionHorizons Atlanta is a transformational, community-centered, summer learning program proven to close the opportunity gap. We believe that every child in Atlanta, regardless of background, should have the same chance at making a positive impact on his or her community. We provide this opportunity by eliminating the critical barriers to success that many of our children face, thus putting them on a path to:
- Read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade,
- Graduate from high school,
- Receive higher education, and
- Become globally competitive professionals.
What We DoHorizons Atlanta is a six-week summer learning experience that supports students from underserved communities throughout their K-12 academic careers. All across metro Atlanta, students discover the joy of learning, skills for success, and inspiration to achieve their dreams.
Students begin their Horizons journey as early as Kindergarten and return year after year through high school. It's a long-term and deep engagement with students who come to us with a broad range of academic ability. Given this opportunity, Horizons Atlanta students thrive.
Using an experiential approach, Horizons approach, students "learn by doing." They become inspired as they explore reading, math, science, music, theater, art, swimming, and other activities that cultivate creativity and leadership.
