Summer on the Hill at Horace Mann is a year-round supplemental enrichment program that has served more than 1,700 promising students since 1994. During a 5-week summer program and 18 Saturdays over the course of the school year, SOH holds accelerated classes in language arts, math, science, performing and visual arts to develop the potential of students who are not being challenged enough in their public schools.  We partner with 80 Bronx and Upper Manhatan public schools to identify and recruit students.  Students begin at Summer on the Hill during the summer before their 3rd grade year and continue through 8th grade.  We also offer a non-obl
igatory High School program which includes free ACT prep classes, college trips for 10th and 11th grade students, and mentorship from alumni and young professionals.  For more information on volunteer opportunities, our admissions process and how to support Summer on the Hill, visit our website at:  We extend sincere thanks to Gina Parker-Collins for the chance to introduce ourselves to RIISE families.  Happy summer to all! 


Many thanks, Gina!
