Since 1991, The Horizons School has been preparing young adults with learning difficulties for an independent life. Our curriculum, with the community as our classroom, provides students with the skills to live and work independently.

The Horizons School is located in a vibrant community where students learn in a safe, supervised setting. The school building and residence are in a quaint downtown neighborhood, which has all the amenities our students need within walking distance. Our location gives our students easy access to the city’s public transportation system, which enables them to access all parts of the city and surrounding suburbs.
