SNAP to Middle School program at Horizon Academy is designed to kickstart student executive function (EF) readiness for students entering 6th and 7th grades in the 2023-2024 school year.

This is a program designed to support students to improve:

  • Self-Awareness
  • Goal-Setting
  • Organizing materials
  • Tracking time
  • Completing multistep directions

SNAP to Middle School provides students a safe opportunity to rehearse these skills prior to middle school entry.

The SNAP to Middle School program is designed to help forgetful, disorganized, and time-challenged students realize and embrace the new expectations of middle school. Students who benefit from this program are those who:

  • Can attend all in-person program sessions
  • Can attend all virtual follow-up sessions
  • Can work in small groups with peers
  • Can ask and answer questions in groups
  • Can be redirected when their attention shifts
  • Can transition away from a preferred activity

Please note: Students who require constant, individual adult support, or require a significant amount of movement or sensory stimulation to be productive, should explore our EF Coaching Program for individual students.
