**Please note these important program updates—

  • After school classes will begin immediately after school and will end at 4:45. Parents who sign their children up for these free classes should ensure their child can be picked up by 4:45 on the day(s) of class.

  • Students are NOT assigned to classes on a first come, first serve basis. All sign ups that are received in the sign up timeframe will be considered and students will be assigned by a lottery-style placement. Students will not be assigned to a class they have already taken in a previous session this school year.

Hilliard Horizon Elementary is the recipient of a 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant. This grant is provided by the Ohio Department of Education.

Description of the Program

The program has two components. Hilliard Horizon’s 21st Century Community Learning Center includes a morning program and an after school program.

Morning Programming

Selected students arrive at Hilliard Horizon at 7:45 am to begin their school day. This morning session is called “Power Hour”. Students meet in a select small group to work on academic skills. Teachers from Hilliard Horizon meet the students in the classroom and work on specific academic needs. The students note that they love this time because it gives them a chance to ask questions and get a start on their academic day.

After School Programming
