Horizons at Dedham Country Day offers a tuition-free academic enrichment summer program to students of low-income families from neighborhoods in Boston and Dedham.
We make a long-term investment in every pre-kindergartner, promising ten consecutive summers of learning through 8th grade. A life-altering intervention, the Horizons program changes the trajectory of the lives of our students–and directly impacts their families and our community.
Our unique approach combines project-based academic learning, field trips and swimming instruction. For six weeks students explore science, music, theater and art in addition to reading and math lessons to combat what’s known as “summer slide.”
