Partnerships are Critical to Horizons' Success


Our Partners

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
