Horizons Atlanta Program

It was the vision and the heart of the 2013 Clark Atlanta University Board of Trustees, Board of Trustees Member Emiratis – Dr. Lisa Borders, and former University Presidents to bring forth the Horizons Atlanta Clark Atlanta University Program! For the seventh summer, the Horizons Atlanta Clark Atlanta University Program, anchored in the School of Education, is the only Historically Black College and University in the Horizons National Network of Affiliates of over sixty other sites. 

The Horizons Atlanta Clark Atlanta University Program has a strong and focused presence in Atlanta, Georgia, and in our Nation to reduce and prevent children’s summer learning loss. As a Clark Atlanta University community outreach Program, we seek to positively impact the learning and living of underserved children and families!

There are nine other HORIZONS ATLANTA Programs: Horizons Georgia TECH, Horizons Woodward Academy, Horizons Atlanta Technical College, Horizons Holy Innocence, Horizons Kennesaw State University, Horizons Georgia State University, Horizons International School, Horizons at Purpose Built Schools, Horizons at The Galloway School.
