In 1999, Holy Innocents' Episcopal Church and Holy Innocents' Episcopal School formed a partnership to bring the Horizons Student Enrichment Program to Atlanta. The church, school and Horizons share a common goal to provide invigorating and meaningful academic and recreational programs to young students whose families would otherwise not be able to afford such a luxury. Through the years, the program has blossomed into one of the finest and most successful outreach endeavors in the Sandy Springs community.
The mission of Horizons is to provide an academic, cultural, and recreational program designed to encourage a diverse group of students from low-income families to realize their full potential.
Working in partnership with families, Horizons serves students of varying academic abilities throughout their childhood and adolescence.
Horizons is committed to the development of the whole child through experiences that build problem-solving skills, foster awareness of community responsibility, instill respect for oneself and others, and encourage a life-long interest in learning.
