Horizons at Harley

Program Description

The Horizons Student Enrichment Program at The Harley School has been serving low income, City of Rochester students in Kindergarten through 8th grade since 1995. The program, an affiliate of the Horizons National summer learning program, is one of the oldest in the country. The six-week summer program employs an experiential model of teaching that is focused on reading, writing and math. The goals of the Rise program, an expansion of the summer program, are to guide and support high school students in the successful completion of secondary education and the development of strong socio-emotional skills that will support them throughout their lives. We strive to help them break out of the cycle of poverty and provide tools for success in life.
