Who We Serve

Horizons at The Oakwood School is a tuition-free, non-profit, academic enrichment program serving under-resourced students in Pitt County. The Horizons affiliate at The Oakwood School was established in 2016. We are a part of the award-winning Horizons national family, which is made up of over 60 chapters and serves over 6,000+ students annually.

Horizons serves at-risk students with a broad range of academic skills, providing them with the opportunity to experience success in a setting that, over time, becomes an inspirational and stable learning environment for students, families, and the greater community. 

We recruit children from under-resourced families from Pitt County public schools, with emphasis on finding students who are reading below grade level. Each summer, we add a class of 15 students who have just completed kindergarten. Our goal is to add a class of 15 students every year until we have classes in grades K-8.
