Horizons Bridgeport Admissions
Set Your Kids Up For Success
Horizons Bridgeport partners with students and their families to maximize educational outcomes by emphasizing academics and social-emotional learning while providing exposure to a wide variety of social, cultural, and recreational enrichment experiences for students from kindergarten through college.
The Horizons Bridgeport network currently consists of programs (also called affiliates) at three locations: Horizons at Greens Farms Academy (HGFA), Horizons at Notre Dame High School (HND), and Horizons at Sacred Heart University (HSHU). Horizons Bridgeport is in the process of adding more sites to serve even more Bridgeport students.
Applications are accepted from December 2, 2021 through February 28, 2022.
Admissions decisions are released in April.
Every spring, each affiliate admits new students to their K-8 Program. Once admitted, students remain in the program through high school and college. Programming is free, families pay only an annual $30 registration fee.
- Horizons GFA accepts applications from students in grades PreK (entering K in fall 2022) through 8th grade.
- Horizons Notre Dame accepts applications from students in Kindergarten through 4th grade.
- Horizons Sacred Heart accepts applications from students in Kindergarten through 8th grade.
Each of the three Horizons Bridgeport programs is partnered with Bridgeport public, magnet, charter, and parochial schools, so the program your child will be applying to depends on which Bridgeport public school they currently attend. After you submit the application, it will automatically be forwarded to the correct affiliate.
