Horizons at St. Richard’s Episcopal School
Horizons at St Richard’s is closing the achievement gap in Indianapolis by providing underserved children access to high-quality academics in an engaging program, that primarily takes place in the summer, tuition free. Summer learning loss is the largest contributing factor to the national achievement gap putting low-income students as much as three years behind by the fifth grade. In contrast, Horizons students gain an average of two to three months reading and math skills during the five-week summer program. In addition to preventing summer learning loss, Horizons has two other goals; increasing water safety by teaching our children a life-saving skill through swim lessons at Butler University three times a week, and obesity prevention by teaching and modeling healthy habits.
Celebrate our summer at Closing Ceremony
Thursday, July 23rd from 5:00-6:00 pm we will have our annual Closing Ceremony. Students will showcase what they learned and accomplished this summer. This is a great way to show your support and celebrate the hard work of our students and teachers. Event hosted at St. Richard’s Episcopal School.
