Serving students from under-resourced communities in the Greater Philadelphia area

Programs

In 2019, Horizons Greater Philadelphia was formed with its partner locations, Horizons at the Episcopal Academy and Horizons at Greene Street Friends School. Horizons at Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School and Horizons at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy launched programs in the Summer of 2021.

Over the next 5 years, Horizons Greater Philadelphia plans to expand to house up to 8 regionally coordinated sites, eventually enabling more than 1,000 Philadelphia area students to participate in Horizons. Our area sites share best practices, develop joint programming initiatives and opportunities for collaboration, and support the growth of Horizons in the Philadelphia area.
