New Horizon Academy

New Horizon Academy


New Horizon Academy, a Minnesota family-owned and operated company, has been serving young children for over 50 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, is our CEO. 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. 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 education. As New Horizon Academy continues to grow and serve more families each year, we will always have family roots, an open door, and a commitment to excellence.
