Lasting Friendships

Our before-and-after school program provides a happy, club-like atmosphere where children are offered enriched learning opportunities in a fun and engaging environment. The rhythm of the program takes into account each school-age child’s desire to form lasting friendships, explore theme-related topics of interest, gain confidence in their independence skills, and experience a balance of learning and fun.

Field Trips

New Horizon Academy is open on many school release days throughout the year. To make those days off of school more fun, school-agers will often go on a field trip or have a special guest visit!

“My daughter attended the after school program at New Horizon. It was SO convenient for us that they offer this program because it allowed us to have one pick-up location. The teachers were great, and she loved the change of scenery from her school’s program.”
