Who We Serve
Serving girls from Charleston, South Carolina
Horizons at Ashley Hall serves low-income girls who attend public schools in downtown Charleston. These underserved students discover the joy of learning, acquire skills for success, and gain inspiration to achieve their dreams.
We’re in this for the long term. When a girl enters the program in kindergarten, we make a nine-year commitment to prepare her to enter high school with the skills, knowledge and determination she’ll need to graduate. It’s a long-term and deep engagement with students who come to us with a broad range of academic ability.
In the project-based Horizons approach, kids “learn by doing.” They become inspired as they explore reading, math, science, music, theater, art, swimming, and other activities that cultivate creativity and leadership. And it works. Once a student is enrolled in Horizons, anything seems possible.
