Horizons Atlanta - transformational, community-centered, summer learning program
From the web site: "When a student enrolls in Horizons Atlanta the summer after Kindergarten, he or she joins a learning community that extends year-round, with a signature six-week summer intensive through 8th grade. Horizons Atlanta students, all of whom are free-or-reduced-lunch qualified, come from public schools, and are in need of academic support. By design, roughly 2/3 of students perform below grade level when they first enroll. And, because we make a long-term commitment to our families, siblings of enrolled students receive admissions preference when they are of eligible age to apply. Our programs are physically located within or geographically near communities and public schools in need. For most programs, we provide daily bus transportation to and from our site, helping to mitigate any safety concerns for students who reside outside of walking distance to our program sites. We also strive for our programs to be as closely located to their feeder public schools as possible so as to enhance the collaborative nature of our work and further our understanding and connection to the home communities of our students." NOTE: The Atlanta program is part of a national network of Horizons programs in different cities, including Chicago
