The high school dropout rate of Washington, DC-area disadvantaged students in 60 percent. Only one in three goes to college. Horizons helps students beat the odds by proving hands-on education enrichment to reduce learning loss year-round through our summer and Saturday programs.


Help us raise $7,000 to support student success and help close the achievement gap.



We tell our children they can be whatever they want to be when they grow up. But today, too few of them have the opportunities that propel them on a path of success in school and life. The DC metropolitan region has one of the widest gaps in the nation between the academic performance of students from low-income families and their peers.

When it comes to helping children find academic and personal success, there is clear evidence of what works: nurturing classrooms with high quality learning experiences and well­-qualified instructors, consistent support from adults, and character­building activities like arts and sports. This is the kind of environment all kids need to be able to reach for their dreams. This is the Horizons environment
