Kennesaw State University

Horizons Atlanta at Kennesaw State University (KSU) will serve 135 rising 1st through 9th grade Paulding County students at full enrollment. Horizons scholars benefit from a strong partnership with KSU's Bagwell School of Education that provides additional individual and small group instruction from college students majoring in Early Childhood Education. The rigorous, STEM-centered curriculum is also supported by KSU's Instructional Technology and Community Engagement Departments. Community organizations such as Certain Strokes, The Dallas Theater, and Roundtree Recreational Center provide artistic and cultural enrichment for this program. Weekly field trips and swimming lessons three times per week round out the educational components and build scholars’ confidence and self-esteem.
