New Horizon Academy


New HorizonNew Horizon Academy

New Horizon Academy, a Minnesota family-owned and operated company has been serving young children for over 45 years. Our founder, Sue Dunkley, began her career as an elementary school teacher. Sue knew she needed to provide a nurturing place for children to go before they ventured out into the big world and entered school, a place that would help them believe in themselves. That is why New Horizon was born. Today, Chad Dunkley, Sue’s son and one of New Horizon Academy’s first students, is our Chief Executive Officer. Chad ensures that the commitment to excellence Sue strived for in New Horizon’s early years and the foundation that our company was built upon continue to be the cornerstone for each New Horizon Academy. Indeed, the entire mission, philosophy, and practices of New Horizon Academy are devoted to that commitment to excellence and the development of a healthy sense of self in every child enrolled in our programs. Because of our continuing love, belief, and dedication to children, we have flourished and become one of the nation’s most successful and respected providers of early care and education. As New Horizon Academy continues to grow and serve more families each year, we will always have family roots, a warm atmosphere, an open door, and a commitment to excellence
