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 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.
Horizons Giving Day 2015
On May 20, 2015, Horizons Programs from across the country will joined together for HORIZONS GIVINGDAY – a one day, online giving event. The goal? To raise $1 Million for existing programs and new programs to serve more children living in poverty in the U.S. With your support we met our goal nationally and here at the Indy site, we raised over $20,000! Thank you to everyone that helped us raise enough money to fund our entire Kindergarten class!
