Horizons Student Enrichment Program
Horizons Student Enrichment Program at The Jersey Shore has operated on The Rumson Country Day School campus for over twenty years. Horizons is an award-winning, tuition-free, academic and enrichment program serving low-income, public school students from the Red Bank community. Each summer, Horizons offers a six-week program to at-risk students, in grades K-8, from a diverse, low-income population. Horizons' goal is to offer more than 250 students the opportunity to attend its summer program.

• To prevent or reduce summer learning loss amongst Horizons students
• To foster lifelong desire for learning
• To provide cultural experiences and social growth
• To insure that all Horizons children learn to swim, an important life skill that saves lives and builds confidence
Volunteers are an essential component of the Horizons programs. Volunteers support our professional teachers, offer cultural and recreational programs, and assist our chef in providing nutritional meals. Many RCDS alumni and their parents serve as volunteers to the Horizons children.
Horizons is able to operate thanks to the generous support from The Rumson Country Day School, community-minded individuals, foundations, corporations and other charitable organizations. The cost of sending one child to Horizons for the summer is approximately $2,500.
Best in the Nation: Horizons National received the 2010 Excellence in Summer Learning Award from the National Summer Learning Association. Horizons also earned national recognition from the Wallace Foundation as one of the premier summer learning programs.
