Horizons Albuquerque is a nonprofit organization offering enrichment programming for public school students in Albuquerque. Horizons is committed to the development of the whole child through experiences that develop academic skills, enhance self-esteem, foster responsibility, build problem-solving skills, and encourage a lifelong interest in learning. The program emphasizes academic enrichment, social growth with structured group dynamics, swimming lessons, and the arts.
The Horizons Albuquerque program began in the summer of 2014, welcoming 46 students entering second, third, and fourth grade. By summer 2020, Horizons will have 156 students entering grade 1 - freshman in High School. The program will add a grade level each subsequent year until the program serves kindergarten to twelfth grade students. Once a student is enrolled in Horizons, they may return each year without reapplying, provided they are meeting program requirements.
