HORIZONS at New Canaan Country School

Horizons at NCCS is a nonprofit that was established to transform the lives of underserved children and youth through year-round academic and enrichment programs to inspire learning, encourage success, and close the opportunity gap. Founded in 1964, Horizons at NCCS is the first in a nationwide network of programs that are successfully closing the opportunity gap experienced by under-resourced students. Horizons at NCCS builds deep and lasting relationships with the more than 400 K-12 Norwalk and Stamford students we serve. Our six-week Summer Program and year-round academic and enrichment supports and opportunities are helping our students imagine and achieve a brighter future for themselves.
