Inspiring minds,
building community,
transforming lives.

Horizons Hampton Roads offers impactful academic and enrichment programs that encourage students from Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Virginia Beach to realize their full potential.    

Our Mission: We advance educational equity by building long-term partnerships with students, families, communities, and schools to create experiences outside of school that inspire the joy of learning.

Research shows that students fall behind in their academics every summer, and those who fall two or more grade levels behind, never catch up.  Students of Horizons Hampton Roads in grades K-8 make significant measurable gains in both reading and math each summer.  This steady growth transcends to the traditional school year classroom, and students continue to grow academically – maintaining at or moving above grade level expectations.

All children thrive in high-quality, enriching environments, but too many fail to get the start in life they need to fulfill their potential.  Horizons Hampton Roads believes in the potential of every child.  Our engaging learning environment and community-centered approach are proven to help close the opportunity gap for children and put them on a path to success in school and in life. Horizons Hampton Roads is a local affiliate of Horizons National.
