Statement of Purpose: Horizons is a non-profit program that offers student enrichment designed specifically for Denver Public School children from low-income families. The program is committed to the development of the whole child through experiences that enhance self-esteem, foster responsibility, build problem-solving skills, and encourage a life-long interest in learning. It emphasizes academic enrichment, social growth with structured group dynamics, swimming lessons and sports participation, life-skills, cultural experiences, and the arts. Since 1998, CA has hosted the Horizons program by welcoming low-income kids from Southwest Denver and offering them some of the most enriching elements of our school. The program has grown to serve over 140 students for six weeks every summer and six selected “Super Saturdays” during the school year.
