Horizons Atlanta at Kennesaw State University
Inspiring Minds - Building Community - Transforming Lives
Kennesaw State University became an affiliate of Horizons Atlanta in 2015. Our Horizons Atlanta at KSU Summer Learning Program supports students from Allgood and Dallas Elementary Schools in Paulding County. 2019 marks our fifth year of six weeks summer learning with 75 scholars attending. Each year a group of 15 rising 1st graders are selected to participate. These students return each summer until reaching 9th grade.
Our scholars participate in small group academic learning activities, swim lessons, visual and dramatic arts, field trips, and social and emotional learning. The culminating activity of 2019 summer learning is the performance of a musical at the Dallas Theater. This year, our students will perform the musical, Character Matters. Family, friends, and community are invited to join in our celebration.
