Horizons at Carolina Day School is an award-winning academic enrichment program committed to expanding opportunities for under-served children in Asheville, NC.

What is the summer slide?

The summer slide is the tendency for students, especially those living in low-income households, to lose academic ground over the summer. This slide happens because of an opportunity gap - the inability to access enriching, constructive summertime experiences.

We offer a range of academic and healthy youth development activities free of charge over the course of our six-week summer program to bridge this opportunity gap including:

  • Reading & Writing practice
  • STEM Activities
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Dance & Music lessons
  • Field Trips
  • Confidence building challenges like swimming + hiking
