Our Scholars & Families

Two smiling Horizons studentsHorizons Albuquerque serves students from public schools who qualify for free or reduced lunch. Their schools identify them as students who would benefit from long-term participation in an extended learning program. When students first arrive at Horizons, roughly two-thirds perform below grade level. Families commit to long-term engagement by participating in the program through high school graduation. 

Horizons helps foster students’ innate curiosity, love of learning, and self-confidence. Our students return to school each fall, demonstrating literacy and math performance gains. 

Throughout the school year, Horizons Albuquerque offers out-of-school learning opportunities for scholars and families, including:

  • Tutoring 
  • Guitar instruction
  • Homework club 
  • Family events 
  • Financial Literacy 

Horizons Albuquerque partners with local agencies and other non-profits to provide resources for scholars and families. Partnerships include:

  • Albuquerque Guidance Center
