Serving Underresourced Students in Lancaster
Our students are public school students from the School District of Lancaster who qualify for free or reduced lunch. Identified by their teachers, Horizons kids are learners from a variety of skill levels who need a boost to help close gaps of achievement and opportunity. Horizons families commit to being a part of the program year after year. Parents attend workshops on topics from nutrition to early literacy while students attend Saturday reunions during the school year.
Once a student joins Horizons at LCDS, he or she is a member of the Horizons family throughout his or her academic career, even if he or she transfers out of the School District of Lancaster. We give preference to younger siblings of Horizons students, helping us to serve entire families and to create meaningful bonds.
