New Horizon School & Learning Center is a state certified, non-profit educational organization based in Santa Rosa, CA.

We provide individualized learning programs for learning different and dyslexic students. Our programs integrate educational therapy, remedial assistance, creative expression and self-esteem building utilizing a holistic, multi-disciplinary approach to facilitate the development of each student’s unique learning potential.

Our Mission

New Horizon School & Learning Center is a private, nonprofit, state-certified day school and after school program. Our mission is to serve students demonstrating average to above-average intelligence who experience learning difficulties. Our goal is to provide a therapeutic learning environment to ensure success at New Horizon School or in other educational settings.

Our students may have been diagnosed with a specific language deficit, perceptual difficulties, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, non-verbal learning disabilities and/or attention issues. Some may also experience school phobia or depression.

Many have gone undiagnosed and often feel deeply discouraged by previous school failures. Typically they have been unsuccessful learners in traditional classrooms.

Our Supporters

We invite friends of New Horizon School and community to  Donate to Our School.  We will provide a Tax ID number and non-profit certification form on request.             

Our Wish List:

  • Donations for scholarships

  • Educational technology and software

New Horizon School

“It’s no overstatement to say that I’m not sure where my son would be if it weren’t for New Horizon School.

“There were no adequate resources for him when we lived in Marin County and we were directed to New Horizon. He went to New Horizon from 6th grade through high school graduation. His early comment was, ‘I like it here. Everybody is just like me.’

“His learning disability is not obvious but the teachers and counselors at New Horizon found out how to help him learn and graduate. They also helped him find himself and his love for music.

“We found greater cooperation than with any other school. My wife remarked once, ‘I have not had to fight with anyone to get what our son needs.’ New Horizon has been exactly what we needed"

-Paul and Angela Newman
