The Horizons Student Enrichment Program was founded on the New Canaan Country School campus in 1964.  From the beginning, the program emphasized a full day of academic classes and enrichment activities including athletics, field trips, and a swimming program.  

Conceived as a program that would reach out and serve children from low-income communities, the Horizons mission remains essentially unchanged today. Horizons is an enrichment program designed to encourage students from a diverse low-income population to explore new worlds and to realize their full potential. Guided by a professional faculty in a nurturing environment, the program emphasizes academics, the arts, intramural sports, and social growth. Horizons is committed to the development of the whole child through experiences that enhance self-esteem, build problem-solving skills, and encourage a lifelong interest in learning.

In 2013 Norwalk Community College became one of 38 affiliated programs located at independent schools and college campuses across the country. We began with one classroom of kindergarten children.  In 2014 we expanded to three classrooms ranging from Pre K, Kindergarten and First grade.
