Horizon Academic is a trimester-long online research program for extraordinary high school students interested in doing undergraduate-level research. Our program is structured to advise students in selecting a topic, conducting research, and crafting a research manuscript under the individualized guidance of a professor or doctoral researcher from a globally renowned university. Students in Horizon Academic choose their own field of inquiry within one of the 15 subjects that we offer. After a trimester of reading, writing, and exploring, students finish their final projects, most often a 20 page research paper. By showcasing a student's very best work, Horizon gives students the opportunity to get letters of recommendation, seek outside recognition of the quality of their work, and demonstrate their exceptional talent to universities. Horizon Academic has always been conducted entirely online, and students complete research projects using desktop research methods, without the need to access any equipment or research facilities.
