Horizon Christian Academy:
Located in Cumming in Forsyth County, GA, Horizon Christian Academy is a growing non-denominational K-12 Christian school founded in 2000 and accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). We are a small private school (approximately 300 students in total) with a committed focus on academic excellence, spiritual growth, and community service. Horizon Christian Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color or national origin.
Academic Programs (Kindergarten - 12th Grade):
- Early Childhood program
- Elementary School program
- Middle School program
- Senior School program
Our curriculum represents a strong core augmented by dedicated teachers who possess a passion for learning and a love for students. Personalized education is accomplished through Individual Performance Plans (IPP) that are created by the staff, parents, and student to leverage the learner’s abilities to his or her potential.
The IPP’s are based upon the student’s assessment and previous classroom performance, student and parent goals, and staff review. Progress is monitored regularly with a formal Parent / Teacher / Student Review held at the end of every semester. Furthermore, our small classes (at least a 1:12 staff:student ratio) and interactive approaches enhance interpersonal dynamics.
Horizon Christian Academy emphasizes Relevant Learning Experiences, which combine disciplines into a focused practical case study or project. For example, students may see how Science, Math, Social Sciences, and English all come together in a hospital tour during “Medicine Month.” The following month, students may see how various disciplines interconnect while touring the courthouse and learning more about our legal and political process during “Civics” month.
We believe strongly in encouraging a love of learning in our students by making education as “hands-on,” practical, and exciting as possible. To this end we will utilize methods to stimulate all of the senses and build upon processes of learning that are the areas of strength in each of our students.
In addition to these “real-life” experiences, we understand the importance of integrating technology into the classroom by maintaining a ratio of at least 1 computer for every 5 students. Our teaching methods will also utilize interactive CD-Rom, filtered Internet educational tools, and pertinent instructional videos. HCA will aid our students in becoming computer proficient and encourage them to pursue certifications through Microsoft and other corporate avenues.
Generally, our goal at HCA is to encourage every student to achieve his or her potential in every area. We believe it is extremely important to build a very strong base of skills in English, Math, Science, and Social Science while also encouraging our students to pursue excellence in at least one field or set of electives at the highest levels in secondary education. We will work diligently to leverage strengths and minimize weaknesses. With dedicated students, parents, and staff, the opportunities are certainly exciting.
Athletics at Horizon Christian Academy teach students teamwork and a winning attitude, regardless of the outcome of an event. Sports in which Horizon competes are: football, cheerleading, soccer, volleyball, cross country, basketball, baseball, tennis and golf.
