APPLYING TO HORIZONS BRIDGEPORT
Horizons Bridgeport 2024 Admissions is open from
December 1, 2023 through February 15, 2024.

before proceeding with the application.
Every spring, each Horizons Bridgeport 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.
Each year, the three affiliates admit current Kindergarten students who will be entering 1st grade in the fall. In addition, Horizons GFA admits eight PreK students who will be entering Kindergarten in the fall (must have turned 5 years old by September 1st). All three affiliates then admit students in higher grades if openings occur.
Each of the three Horizons Bridgeport programs is partnered with the Bridgeport public, magnet, charter, and parochial schools listed above, so the program your child will be considered for depends on which Bridgeport school they attend at the time of application. Your child’s application will automatically be forwarded to the correct affiliate.
