Horizons GFA partners with students attending under-resourced Bridgeport schools to develop strong academic, social and emotional skills, habits of mind and the resilience to succeed in school and pursue a meaningful, choice-filled life.
The gap in educational outcomes between Bridgeport and neighboring communities persists, with the zip code a child is born into often dictating life trajectory. Horizons GFA is uniquely poised to help its Bridgeport students improve their educational outcomes by providing innovative and individualized programming that enables students gain the academic and social-emotional skills needed to not only graduate from high school but complete their post-secondary education with prospects for a career of their choice.
Horizons GFA’s innovative programs seek to provide access and opportunity to underserved Bridgeport students in PreK through college. Horizons emphasizes academics, social-emotional learning (SEL) and character development, and exposes students to a variety of social, cultural and recreational enrichment experiences in science, the arts, and athletics. The organization is comprised of integrated programs designed to support students as they progress through their educational journey: the PreK-8 Program, the High School Program, and the College Success Program.
