Horizons at DCD - Summer Learning Academy

Horizons at Dedham Country Day offers a tuition-free academic enrichment summer program to students from low-income families in Boston and Dedham. Program Goals & Outcomes: Through ten successive summers of academic enrichment through Horizons, our long term goal for every student we serve is to stay on track to earn a high school diploma and prepare to enter college or other post-secondary educational institution to build marketable skills that lead to economic self-efficiency. Program goals are: • Prevent summer decline in student academic performance • Improve student motivation to learn and school performance over time • Enhance students’ social and civic skills • Teach responsibility and problem solving • Raise children’s expectations and aspirations while building self-esteem • Encourage parents to become more involved in their children’s education

Grades Served: 2021-2022 School Year Grades K1-8; 2022-2023 School Year Grades K2-9
