What Classes Can Be Expected Through the Horizons Family CoOp?

Because this program relies on the gifts of participating parents, every semester offers a unique assortment of options. You may not be able to count of the same classes each semester, but there is always something new and exciting, offered by someone who has a passion for the subject.  However, popular subjects tend to be offered frequently and teachers like to take advantage of current events with specialized classes (for example, a class in American Government around election time).

Activities for our youngest groups (Sprouts 2-3’s and Scouts 4-6’s) typically involve age-appropriate songs, indoor or outdoor games, stories, crafts, and sometimes experiments. Our Explorers (6-9 yrs) enjoy 2 separate hours with a different unit study each hour. For example, it could be art or outdoor games 1st hour and a more focused academic unit study 2nd hour (like the Continents or Famous Explorers, for example). The Voyagers (9-early teen) get to CHOOSE from a minimum of 2 class options each hour. Subjects have included Photography, Cooking, General Science, the Civil War, Ancient Civilizations, Public Speaking, Guitar, Drama, American Government, AND MORE! There’s no end to what could be available.
