In the past, Horizons courses have only been open to college students. Past Horizonites have attended schools like Harvard, Princeton, UPenn/Wharton, Columbia, Babson, and more. Now we are opening the opportunity to talented high school students.
The program has had engineers, business students, liberal arts majors and designers take our program who have gone on to receive product management, engineering, and venture capital offers from firms such as Google, Zappos.com, Yelp, Optimizely, Redfin, Insight Venture Partners, and Slack. Others are winning global hackathons and building their own startup ideas.
The programs are rigorous and challenging – candidates with strong academic records and/or interest in programming are encouraged to apply!
If selected, room and board in San Francisco is entirely paid for!
The Leadership Academy at Mercy College is geared towards students who have a passion for business and demonstrated leadership and public speaking skills. We invite you to nominate your students to apply to our Summer Leadership Academy. Last year we received over 1,000 nominations from around the country from which we accepted 200 students to attend. The week-long Academy is held at our Westchester campus on the Hudson River and students visit our Manhattan campus near Times Square. Students learn leadership lessons from leaders at top global companies, match a personality assessment to potential careers, and participate in team-building activities. In addition, students visit Fortune 500 companies. Past visits have included Microsoft/LinkedIn, Disney/ESPN, PWC, and MTV, among others. There is no charge for tuition and students stay in the dorm for free. Students simply need to provide their own transportation to and from campus, as well as a check in the amount of $300 for food.
