Horizons at Saint David’s is a six-week summer program held on the campus of Saint David’s School on the upper east side of Manhattan. Our project-based educational model is designed to fuel a lifelong passion for learning, blending high-quality academics with cultural enrichment and confidence-building activities like swimming, arts, and sports. In small classes led by professional teachers, students dive into a rich curriculum with a focus on literacy and STEM. Horizons serves students with a broad range of academic skills, providing them with the opportunity to experience success in a setting that, over time, becomes an inspirational and stable learning environment.
Our focus on literacy and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) inspires students to learn, achieve, and experience greater academic success. But most of all, students develop a love of learning. Horizons at Saint David’s also offers swimming instruction, a hot lunch and two healthy snacks, field trips, arts, and an overall emphasis on social-emotional learning.
All Horizons students qualify for free or reduced lunch, and reflect the diversity of their local community. When they first come to Horizons, most students are performing below grade level.
Horizons head teachers are paid professionals, from public, parochial, and independent schools, all working together. Our small class sizes and our student-centered approach to project-based learning brings our teachers back year after year.
Through an in-depth six-week summer program, with additional touch points throughout the year, Horizons students can experience the freedom of new ways of learning.
