Salisbury Horizons is an extraordinary and truly unique non-profit that has achieved huge things for children in our own community. The program aims to educate and inspire elementary-aged students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds and provides them with a wide array of academic, social and recreational opportunities.
Horizons teaches children from economically disadvantaged families to thrive in spite of challenging circumstances. Our holistic, hands-on approach to learning equips students with a strong motivation to learn and the skills necessary to realize their full potential. We have a diverse group of students. The program serves potentially high achieving, but at risk, public school students in a six-week private school summer program with follow-up reinforcement programs and special events during the school year.
In 2003 O.U.R. Community, Inc. formed a partnership with The Salisbury School, The Wicomico County Board of Education and Horizons National to bring the Horizons Program to Salisbury. We are one of only thirteen public/private sites that are part of this unique national program. The program began almost forty years ago in Connecticut at the New Canaan Country School. Twelve years ago it became a new national organization, Horizons National to replicate the model.
