Horizons Home Study


     The mission of Horizons Home Study is to enter into a partnership with parents to help students succeed as learners and to become productive citizens. A diversity of educational philosophies within the framework of a learning contract is honored. Parents assume the responsibility for their students' learning and for the management of curriculum.
