Partnerships are Critical to Horizons' Success
Horizons is a true public-private collaboration. Independent schools donate their campus and facilities for use, while Horizons Affiliates raise their funds locally for public school students to attend the program. The relationship established between the independent host school and the Horizons program is symbiotic, benefiting both organizations by:
Providing an environment for learning not otherwise accessible to low income children
Extending the reputation of the host school locally and nationally
Providing community service opportunities for students, parents, faculty and trustees of the host school
Offering a potential resource for diversity in the school’s student population
Attracting excellent teachers to both the Horizons program and the host school
Expanding the school’s visibility in the giving community
