Founded in 2000 at the Maret School, Horizons Greater Washington grew to a multi-site model and became its own 501(c)3 in 2010.  The organization is an outcome-based program to improve academic achievement for low-income children focused on educating the whole child over nine years.

 

Our Mission and Goals

Horizons Greater Washington develops public-private partnerships between independent and public school communities to provide academic, cultural, and recreational programs designed to empower economically disadvantaged students to realize their full potential.

HGW’s rigorous academic curriculum develops creativity, problem solving, and critical thinking skills in students during the critical summer months. The organization intervenes during summer and supports during the school year to prevent learning gaps that may occur due to lack of opportunity or access to high quality instruction, preparing students for success in future endeavors.


Bedford has helped accomplish over 200 of its partners’ major conservation goals. They inspire everyone to care for the planet.
