My 2 grandchildren go to this school. The education and support they receive at HCS is far and away better than in public schools. I am so happy they are doing so well and the teachers and staff are so very supportive.

High School is an excellent school. Caring teachers and administrators. It's a place where kids can be involved in sports, leadership, drama, and clubs - all at once! Great Christian values. Would HIGHLY recommend the high school.

Our daughter came to Horizon Jr. High in February, 5 months after school started. The kids in her grade, were warm and welcoming and she fit in right away. It was a huge change in her countenance, attitude, and demeanor from the school she had been to the first day and week at Horizon. This school has been a huge blessing to our daughter and us as parents. It's not only a warm and welcoming environment for the students but for the parents as well.

We sought a safe school environment for our sons where there might be less bullying, violence, or insults. We gave Horizon Christian Schools a try and discovered that "SAFE" actually translated to S-piritual, A-cademic, F-un, and E-mpowering ! Spiritual: The emphasis of the school is on Christ and developing Christ-like qualities. Academic: The teachers provide plenty of intellectual challenge and support. Fun: There are many ways for kids to engage with sports, the arts, service projects, and social activities. Empowering: The kids are encouraged to celebrate the unique gifts God has given them and to develop leadership and compassion to share those gifts with others.

My son transferred her from public to start 6th grade. I can't say enough about the love and support he received from the teachers. They were beyond amazing. I believe if he would have been in another school that he would have really struggled, more than he did here. I don't know how we would have made it through. They care about their students so much and show it everyday. They went above and beyond to make sure he got the help that he needed academically and worked with us and kept in contact us almost on a daily basis. They never made me feel like a bother or pain with all my questions and emails, they supported it. I can't say enough good about the teachers at this school. My daughter ended up starting her high school years here and so far she is loving it. She really struggled socially in her public middle school and it was heart breaking to see her so depressed and angry all the time. In just the first couple weeks of school I see a huge difference in her demeanor and how she is caring about herself and treating the rest of the family. I am so excited to see what the future hold for her. I would do anything I could to send my child here. Horizon is worth it!

Horizon Christian is a K-12th grade school that embraces the philosophy of "Bringing LIFE to Learning". Traditionally this phrase read "Bringing Learning to Life" however at Horizon teachers and staff put LIFE in learning meaning they pour their hearts into the job required daily activity regardless of time and compensation. Each student is a mission field unto itself. The greatest rewards are when my kids come home appreciating the challenges to think critically beyond the concept into the application and God intended meaning of that principal in life. The classic pursuit of education has involved Reading, wRiting and a-Rithmetic. In order to be effective in the current culture there are 3 "new" R's that Horizon employes: Relationships - It has been said that students "Don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." Thus, the first responsibility of educators must be to know and care for their students individually. Relevance - Are instructors in tune with the culture and able to engage students through innovative instructional strategies? Rigor - Students need to be pushed in order to achieve their potential. This is the culture of our school.
