Welcome To Horizons Exploratory Academy

Horizons wants to welcome you to a new school year!

ATTENDING IN 2019-2020
All students who intend to return to school or enroll for the first time need to register at the school on the 16th of August from 9:00AM to 1:00PM (310 D Street). It is important that we update health information, contact information, and other aspects of each student record. Students will not be able to attend classes until their registration is complete. ​

The first day of classes for all students is August 19th. As always, the school day will be from 8:00AM to 4:00PM. ​

Some students have outstanding fines attached to their accounts. These need to be resolved before laptop computers can be issued.


Not everyone thrives in a conventional school model, as individual needs can vary greatly between students. At Horizons, all students develop an individualized learning plan in which their goals and aspirations are the center most aspect. From there, they develop a plan to graduate not just with the required classes, but with a solid foundation of skills that they can take with them. ​

Additionally, students at Horizons have freedom to earn credit three different ways. (1) Online education, blended with one-on-one evaluations. (2) Teacher led module classes that focus intensely in a subject area, and (3) independent study in which students present a plan, develop it, implement it, and demonstrate what they learned. ​

Horizons Exploratory Academy isn’t for everyone, but for students who seek and need freedom of education, it is a school that challenges students at all skill levels.

Regards, ​​
