HORIZONS at Georgia Tech is a transformational, community-centered program proven to close the achievement and opportunity gaps for children. A national network of locally vested programs, HORIZONS offers a high-quality learning experience outside of the traditional school year that supports academic achievement and healthy youth development.
The mission of HORIZONS at Georgia Tech 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. The Horizons at Georgia Tech Program partners with two local schools, Centennial Academy and Drew Charter. Only students who qualify for free or reduced priced meals and who are pre-identified by Centennial Academy and Drew Charter School are accepted into the Horizons at Georgia Tech Program.
During the Summer months, students are on Georgia Tech’s campus for six weeks receiving instruction in math, science, and ELA. A reading specialist provides additional one-on-one support the students who have severe reading deficits. The students also learn how to swim while in the program.
During the school year, HORIZONS at Georgia Tech hosts an after school program one day each week at Centennial Academy and Drew Charter. While in the after school program, students get assistance with homework and participate in a hands-on STEAM activity.
