Horizons at Norwalk Community College began with one classroom of kindergarten children in 2013, and the following year we added both a 1st grade and a Pre-K class – one of only three Horizons affiliates nationwide to provide Pre-K programming. In summer 2019, we will serve 94 children from Norwalk, CT in Pre-K through 6th grade. We will continue to “grow a grade” each year through 8th grade.
We believe all children, regardless of income, should have the opportunity to realize their potential. Horizons helps make that happen. Our students discover the joy of learning, skills for success, and inspiration to achieve their dreams.
Once accepted to Horizons, students return year after year. It is a long-term and deep engagement with students who come to us with a broad range of academic ability. Given this opportunity, Horizons students thrive. In the project-based Horizons approach, kids “learn by doing.” They become inspired as they explore reading, math, science, music, theater, art, swimming, and other activities that cultivate creativity and leadership. And it works. Once a student is enrolled in Horizons, anything seems possible.
