Mission

Closing the opportunity and achievement gap through high-quality academics in an engaging and enriching summer learning program

As an affiliate of Horizons National, Horizons Atlanta aims to improve the life trajectory of underserved students and their families by instilling in them the joy of learning, the skills for success, and the inspiration to realize their dreams. We believe that every child in metro Atlanta, regardless of background, should have the same chance at making a positive impact on his or her community. We accomplish this through a transformational, tuition-free, summer learning program that helps eliminate critical barriers to success that many of our children face, thus putting them on a path to:

  • Read proficiently by the end of third grade
  • Achieve eighth grade math competency 
  • Build swimming skills and self-confidence 
  • Graduate from high school, college and career ready
