Serving Children from Germantown on the campus of Greene Street Friends School

Program Elements

Our focus on literacy and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) programming inspires students to learn, achieve, and experience greater academic success. But most of all, we instill a love of learning. Our program also includes swimming instruction, breakfast and lunch, field trips, recreation, arts, and an overall emphasis on family involvement. 

We embrace this same educational philosophy and highly-customizable curriculum. We train teachers with the Horizons teaching philosophy and give them the freedom to create inspiring, energized classrooms. Every Horizons program is unique, yet they all share core elements.  


Horizons students all qualify for free and reduced lunch through the School Nutrition Program, and reflect the diversity within our broader community.


Horizons lead teachers are paid professionals, from public schools, independent schools, and universities, all working together. Our small class sizes (with a 15:2 student to teacher ratio) and our student-centered approach to hands-on learning brings our teachers, students, and families back summer after summer.
