Mission
Horizons at Foote is a six-week summer enrichment program for low-income New Haven public school students.  The students combat the summer slide by engaging in project based learning with daily literacy and math as well as cultural enrichment in music and the arts.  All students learn to swim and go on weekly field trips.  What makes Horizons at Foote truly special is that the same children return every summer from kindergarten through the summer after eighth grade and we accept a new kindergarten class each year.  As a constant in their lives each summer and keeping in touch with special programming during the school year we have a great impact.

Background Horizons at Foote is an affiliate of Horizons National.  For more information on the Horizons mission and background on Horizons programs please visit Horizons National's website at www/horizonsnational.org.  
Impact Our top three accomplishments this year were that we (1) continued to sustain a close-knit community built on mutual respect and trust; (2) our students grew academically over the course of the six-week program and avoided summer learning loss; and (3) our students were exposed to a variety of experiences including field trips, the arts, music, sports, sewing and creative writing. Our goals are for our children to have the best summer of their lives while developing a life-long love of learning.  We expect that all of our students will return to school in fall 2-3 months ahead of where they left the previous school year.  We hope that all of our children feel safe, nurtured and excited to attend the program everyday. We always want our children to look forward to returning to the program each summer.   
Needs
The cost for a student to attend for one summer is $2500.  All funds are raised independently and there is no cost to families.  All children receive full scholarships.  We began with 48 students and add an additional class of 16 students each year. Therefore, we need to ensure that we are sustainable.  We make a commitment to our families and sustainability needs to be a focus and is the responsible thing to do.
 Interns are vital to our program's success. We rely on at least two teaching interns in each classroom. The cost of each intern salary is approximately $1800.00. We need to ensure that we can maintain our staff of interns so that our children can get individualized attention and the program can run in a smooth, organized manner.  
 
Professional development for our teachers is very important. We want to do the best for every child in our program. Our teachers come from independent and public schools and bring unique experiences and perspectives to the program. We hope to enhance the program by engaging in more professional development in project-based learning, responsive classroom training and other opportunities as they arise.

Program Comments
CEO Comments The challenge our program faces is ensuring sustainability as we grown throughout the years. The program began in 2015 with 48 students in grades kindergarten through 2nd grade. Each year the same students return and we accept a new class of 16 kindergartners. We have made a commitment to our students to keep them in the program until the summer after 8th grade. We will ensure that we can do so.
