About Us

The Horizons Student Enrichment Program at The Harley School has been serving low income, City of Rochester students in Kindergarten through 8th grade since 1995. The program, an affiliate of the Horizons National summer learning program, is one of the oldest in the country. The six-week summer program employs an experiential model of teaching that is focused on reading, writing and math. Our hands-on, project-based curriculum successfully counteracts the negative effects of summer learning loss and the associated achievement gap. Students not only improve academically, but learn to swim and participate in a breadth of activities that foster creativity, confidence, citizenship and good health.

The Harley School is a private independent school serving the Rochester, New York area. Its campus includes recently renovated and expanded academic facilities, a 25-meter swimming pool, a large field house, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, several outdoor recreation areas, a creek, and an organic garden.

The teachers, staff, volunteers and others who make up our Horizons community believe that learning is a lifelong and year-round process that should be available to all children equally. We joyfully take on the responsibility to nurture in children a love of learning, self-respect and kind consideration of others so that they become a positive influence on their families, neighborhoods and communities.
