“During the time of COVID-19, I just want to say thank you to all my children’s teachers and the directors at New Horizon Academy. I have three kids who have attended for over 2 1/2 years. The teachers and leadership has been great. I am a front line worker, single mom, and need child care. New Horizon Academy has come through and ensured my children and I could succeed during these difficult times. I wholeheartedly recommend New Horizon Academy and will continue to send my children knowing they are in good hands. Thank you!”
Please know that as we make decisions, your child, your family, and our staff are top of mind, and we promise to stay in close communication with you on all new developments and updates.
We cherish the relationship we have with your family, and we promise constant vigilance against this virus.
