Welcome to Horizons at KSU!

Horizons Atlanta is a six-week summer learning experience that supports students from underserved communities throughout their K–12 academic careers. We believe all children, regardless of income, should have the opportunity to realize their potential.


Horizons programs help make that happen. All across metro Atlanta, our scholars discover the joy of learning, skills for success, and inspiration to achieve their dreams.

Students begin their Horizons journey as early as Kindergarten and return year after year through high school. It is this long-term, deep engagement with our scholars that helps them thrive, regardless of their academic standing when they first entered our program.

In the project-based Horizons approach, our scholars learn by doing. They become inspired as they explore reading, math, science, music, theater, art, swimming, and other activities that cultivate creativity and leadership. And it works. Once a student is enrolled in Horizons, anything seems possible.
