Scholarships

Access to a high-performing school can break down barriers to success and change the life trajectory of students from under-resourced neighborhoods.

With a goal of finding schools that best fit for our students’ individual needs, we seek out high-performing school partners throughout the city who provide our students with a quality education. Charter and selective-enrollment public schools provide strong options for approximately 50% of our students.

For those students not zoned for a high-performing public school or not accepted into a top-tier charter or selective-enrollment school, Horizons for Youth provides 90% tuition scholarships to a private school, which enables these students to receive a quality education. Families commit to contributing the remaining 10% of tuition.
