About Horizons Greater Boston

Organization Overview

Horizons Greater Boston is a regional partnership model supporting community-centered education programs located at several schools and serving many communities in the Greater Boston area. It is modeled after the national Horizons Student Enrichment Program that is designed to promote educational equity by providing out of school opportunities.  The Horizons program begins in prekindergarten and serves its students through high school, helping them build skills and self-confidence and realize their full potential through a unique blend of academic and cultural and recreational enrichment activities. Additionally, Horizons provides direct, individualized academic support and tutoring to its students throughout the year. Horizons is committed to developing the whole child and offers activities that promote higher-level thinking and perspective, leadership development and self-efficacy.

The Horizons program at the Mattahunt Elementary School is a site of Horizons Greater Boston and operates in partnership with Boston Public Schools (BPS).  Horizons at Mattahunt currently serves approximately 160 students from prekindergarten through fifth grade and will continue to grow, serving students into high school.
