For over 20 years, Horizons at Colorado Academy has been a transformative, direct community impact program for underserved youth in and around Denver.
For six weeks during the summer and select year-round programming, Horizons serves more than 150 Pre-K to High School students, providing them with the tools needed for a future filled with meaning and hope.
Committed to the development of the whole child, Horizons offers experiences that enhance self-esteem, foster responsibility, build problem-solving skills, and encourage a lifelong interest in learning. The program consists of academic instruction, STEAM training, social and emotional learning, outdoor education, and a range of health and wellness activities, including swimming, yoga, and nutrition. Two nutritious meals and transportation are also provided.
Addressing the issue of “summer slide,” Horizons students are engaged in building valuable skills, cultivating long-lasting relationships, and are better prepared for the following school year. With optimal student-to-teacher ratios, students are given ample individual attention and are offered opportunities that they might otherwise not have.
