Out Of School Time

Since 1995, Horizons National has worked closely with third-party evaluators and education data companies, including Yale University, Amplify, and Renaissance Learning, to assess the effectiveness of the program. Learn more how we maximize out of school time. 


A Network With High Impact

In a recent study of five years of school district data for Horizons students and their peers, Horizons students achieved:

  • Consistent gains of 6-10 weeks of grade equivalence in reading and math over each 6-week summer session
  • Higher attendance rates and less instances of chronic absenteeism
  • Higher scores on standardized assessments of elementary math and science 
  • Higher GPAs in 9th grade, a critical transition year
  • More course credit earned in 9th and 10th grade 
  • Fewer incidents of repeating a grade 
  • Fewer disciplinary referrals
