Carolina Day School hosts summer learning program

“When I first read about Horizons, I could see that it was not only a great fit for Carolina Day, but also for Asheville and Buncombe County,” said Patel. “The strength and success of this program relies on Horizons students returning every summer to continue their academic enrichment. But Horizons at Carolina Day is more than a summer academic enrichment program. It is about building long-term relationships—ones that allow children to be supported outside of the regular academic calendar, and more importantly, allow them to flourish when they return to the classroom in the fall. Through creating strategic partnerships within our community, Horizons at Carolina Day will build a strong foundation on which children can stand as we work to bridge the achievement gap and help students reach their academic potential.”
