Our Horizons Academy uses a strength-based, case management approach to support the academic and career preparation needs of students. Curriculum includes small group SAT preparation, college counseling, career workshops, internships and job preparation.
We are appreciative to Laurie R. Dien, Senior Program Officer, to Jennifer Correa, Program Officer and to Erickson S.
