About New Horizon Academy
New Horizon Academy is situated at the center of the Bhutanese refugee camp in Morang districts, which is one of the seven refugee camps in the estern Nepal.

There are twelve (12) schools in this camp. In seven of them, there are classes from Pre-primary to Class III, in four of them, there are classes from class IV to VII, and in the center, main school, we have students from class VII to X.
Our basic educational needs are provided by UNHCR and CARITAS Nepal; no other facilities are given for other activities. Our students' foremost needs are sport materials such as footballs, volleyballs and badmintons. There are no other source of entertainment, which leads to frustration and quarrel.
The main objective of the academy is to educate the Bhutanese children, make them aware of the importance of education, so that they will develop a sense of nationality and patriotism. The main goal is "Education for Repatriation".
Here, we teach different subjects like, English, Nepali, Social Studies, Science, Mathematics, Health and Population, Value Education and Vocational subjects. Other co-curricular activities like quiz, cultural programs, sports and games are also held, but due to lack of materials, we cannot do it often.
