Just What is an Educational Partner?
With 25 years of experience, Horizon knows a big part of the learning process is exploring new areas of interest and gaining social skills. To facilitate this for our families, we have spent years developing relationships with local businesses that offer core, enrichment and elective classes, activities and supplies. These select, local businesses are our “educational partners.”
Horizon families can use their student funds to enroll in private or group instruction with approved vendors. Courses include: martial arts, music, horseback riding, dance, robotics, driver training, visual arts, foreign languages, individual and team sports, sewing, cheer, and many, many more elective and enrichment courses, as well as core classes and tutoring for academic subjects. Visit our Enrichment and Electives page to learn more about these types of classes.
Families can also purchase curriculum materials and supplies through our educational partners. Using one of Horizon’s approved vendors guarantees the company has been vetted by Horizon Charter Schools and used by many of our homeschool, independent study and virtual learning families. Plus, you can use student funds to pay for supplies, so there are no out-of-pocket expenses.
Our extensive list of vendors is parent-driven. If your child wants to take a class through a local business that is not on our list or if you have a favorite supplier for course materials, just ask us to add them. Our staff will work with the business to create a working relationship whenever possible.
