Our goal is to offer family-led, Christ-centered, and affordable academic and social enrichment opportunities to the homeschool community regardless of educational approach, to give students an introduction to a wide variety of study topics and expand their learning experiences, to inspire kids to want to learn more, and to provide fellowship and support for homeschooling families.
Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6

What Does it Cost to Participate in Horizons?
The Family CoOp utilizes the gifts of parents, so minimal fees are collected. There is a $10/family registration fee to help cover administrative and facilities costs. Then, a tuition of $25 per student (3 years and older) per semester. A family is only required to pay for up to 3 students - there is no charge for more children beyond the three. So, it’s never more than $75 per semester per family! A 10% discount is given to families who pay for the entire year in advance. Your tuition helps provide supplies for all age groups and there are rarely any additional costs (sometimes a teacher may ask students to bring a notebook from home).
The Horizons High classes are more intensive and instructors often charge a fee for their time and/or supplies. This fee varies based on the type of class, number of meetings, and supplies need - past classes have ranged from $35 to $50 per student and often include a sibling discount. Students may or may not be required to purchase (or borrow) a text or other book. All potential costs are disclosed ahead of time in the class description.
Horizons General Enrichment classes can be free or require an instructor/supply fee as well, so fees vary. In the past they've ranged from free to $65 and often include a sibling discount. Facilities fees are handled by the instructor and may be built into the class fees, so the $10 registration fee does not apply. Additional materials are rarely required but will be disclosed ahead of time in the class descriptions.
