Horizons at St Richard’s is closing the achievement gap in Indianapolis by providing underserved children access to high-quality academics in an engaging summer program, 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 2-3 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.
