Horizon Academy is a specialized program to educate students with learning disabilities. Horizon Academy's goal is to help students with basic skills and to learn strategies so that they can successfully return to a traditional school. The student body is coeducational and serving students from first grade through high school. Students are funded privately either by parents or by local school districts.

Programs:

Regular School Year Program (August – May):
Horizon Academy is a fully accredited private school serving students in grades 1-12. Our students have average or above average intelligence and yet they struggle within the academic environment. We use innovative instructional programs including research-based methodology along with strategic instruction and multi-sensory approaches that help students learn and compensate for their difficulties. An individual educational program is designed for each student that encompasses the whole child.

Our curriculum includes basic skills development, academic skills, social skills, and strategies; as well as technology training to work towards a successful transition back to a traditional school. Along with the intimate classroom setting with a student-staff ratio of no more than 6 to 1, Horizon Academy offers ancillary services including occupational therapy, speech/language therapy, counseling and physical, musical and artistic education.

Horizon Academy After School Programs:
Horizon Academy has several different after school activities geared to different interests which offer a great opportunity to develop friendships, learn new skills and have FUN! Sign ups are at the beginning of 1st semester and then again 2nd semester. Activities include Homework Club, Mad Science, Junior Master Gardeners, and many more.
