We aim to raise money for private schools so that they may be able to allocate more financial aid to financially challenged children who need it and deserve it the most.
We strive to be both professional and compassionate in our interactions inside and outside Reaching New Horizons.

My experience in tutoring made me realize that there are kids who desire to work hard and receive a better education. Many are without opportunity or exposure to academic excellence. Perhaps their parents hold multiple jobs just to pay rent, or maybe they believe that a higher education is a waste of money and do not wish to sacrifice so much for what they believe to be so little.
My hope is to be able to help kids reach their full potential and gain an appreciation for learning that will stick with them forever.
We hope to create a world where finances aren't chains that hold children back from reaching their highest potential.
