We are thrilled to welcome you to Horizons at The Ethel Walker School this summer! We are all Horizons STRONG!!!!

As of June 2022, we will not be requiring masks indoors but they are optional.

Our six-week summer program is, full-day and it includes transportation from feeder school locations (Parkville and Jumoke), academics focused on language arts, literacy and STEAM, a healthy breakfast, lunch, and snack, field trips, daily swimming and social emotional learning offerings.
