Horizon Christian Academy Reviews

children are kind and allow for uniqueness to be an asset not a liability. We came to HCA 3 years ago and while there have been speed bumps, the new headmaster, board and staff have revitalized the school and our experience here has been gratifying. We have 2 children, one in elementary and one in middle school. They are both thriving in the one-on-one environment. I love the curriculum used because it allows kids to actually retain information instead of force feeding too much information only to be over tested and soon forgotten. The staff does a wonderful job of challenging a child's strengths and encouraging growth when they struggle. The children are kind and allow for uniqueness to be an asset not a liability. Overall, I can't say enough great things about the school. We look forward to having both of our kids graduate from here!

My daughter absolutely loves Horizon and so do we! We have found this school to be a place of academic excellence but also one of grace. If you have a shyer type child, this is a great nurturing environment for them to grow and become more confident. This is our second year here and we love it even more.
The administrators and teachers love their students and it shows in all they do for them. My oldest son attended another Christian school for many years and the academics were great but the obsession w/ behavior was just too much and they disciplined in a way that created fear in the kids rather than a true change of heart. I see such a stark difference in the two schools and I am so happy that my daughter is in a loving community of people who care about her as much as I do. I would highly encourage new folks to come and check it out for yourselves.
Our elementary and middle school years were good for the most part minus the bullying, which was allowed to continue in spite of complaints. Resources and policies of the Administration were lacking and downright unethical at times. Students who blatantly broke policies and rules were given honors and awards due to parent involvement in after school activities. They also encouraged middle school students to take high school courses for which they didn't receive credit, knowing they were required by the state of GA to have them for graduation. They behavior was unethical and fraudulent to say the least.
