At Horizon Christian School we believe that educating a child is of the highest calling. Since 1977, we have made that calling our priority by providing quality Christian education for families in the Columbia Gorge area. At Horizon, we are dedicated to helping each student develop their full potential by encouraging academic excellence, integrity, Godly character, and a passion for life. We stress a challenging academic program taught by caring, experienced teachers using the highest quality curriculum with the Bible as the foundation.
Horizon Christian School is accredited by the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools (NAAS). Our pre-kindergarten is fully licensed by the State of Oregon.
Class Size – With an average class size of 15 and a teacher-student ratio of 16:1, Horizon provides individual attention, strong teacher relationships, and a customized education plan for students. Our board is committed to a low student-teacher ration in order to maximize individual instruction and attention.Curriculum – We stress a challenging academic program that includes skill building, critical thinking, spiritual and character development. Christian curriculum provides the core program along with other selected textbooks and materials. Students participate in a full range of classes including language arts, math, science, history, Bible, computer, fine arts (visual art, music, and band), Spanish, physical education and a number of additional electives.
Fine Arts – Students at all grade levels have an opportunity to participate in the music program including primary music, beginning and concert choirs, and beginning, intermediate, and concert bands. Within the visual arts program, which is also offered at all grade levels, students work with a variety of mediums.
Christian Emphasis – Students participate in prayer and discussions about the Bible each day within the classroom and attend Chapel each week. Students often meet on their own initiative for prayer and a parents group meets weekly for prayer. During the first month of each year, Horizon students, parents, and faculty pause to dedicate a day of prayer for our school, community, nation, and world.
