Horizon Charter Schools History
Begun in 1993 as Home Independent Study, the school soon changed its name to Horizon Instructional Systems. In order to make the name more synonymous with its purpose, the name was again changed in 2006 to Horizon Charter School (HCS). In July 2010, Partnerships for Student-Centered Learning Charter School (PaSCL) was added to the Horizon family.
During the early years, HCS was entirely a homeschool program. In response to parent requests to supplement the homeschool program, core and enrichment classes were developed and offered. Learning centers are available to our families and are all located in regions throughout the Sacramento area and in several surrounding counties.
The addition of PaSCL allows better utilization of resource and learning centers outside of Placer County.
HCS are publicly funded and no fees or tuitions are charged.
