Summary of Student Fees Graphic

Horizon Honors provides a curriculum that enriches student learning by applying the new knowledge and skills gained each day in all subject areas to solve real-life problems in a hands-on manner. In addition to our regular curriculum, extra-curricular activities are offered before, during, and after school. In order to support these programs it requires additional funds above and beyond what the state money provides. As a result, we feel it is important to continue these programs by asking our stakeholders to pay additional fees.

The current application of the Arizona Tax Credit law allows for some of these fees to be eligible for a tax credit. You may also choose to contribute an amount in addition to the listed fees of up to a total of $400 (joint filing) or $200 (single filing) per calendar year.

These fees represent only a portion of the costs required to provide such programs as: physical education offered every day; music programs; Spanish for all grade levels; drama; art masterpiece; project group; and many more.  The fees collected will be used to cover the cost of these items.  In order to maintain the quality programs offered at Horizon Honors, it costs approximately $8,084 per student. The school receives approximately $6858 for basic state funding. The difference of $1,226 is covered by fund raising, donations and fees.

Remember that the payment of extra-curricular activity fees and participation in the fundraising conducted each year are not required to have your child enrolled at Horizon Honors. However, it is important to know that payment must be made for your child to participate in those extra-curricular activities requiring fees. Scholarships are available for those families meeting the criteria for financial assistance.

Horizon Honors is excited to continue our convenient payment program which will allow families to pay fees online! Student fee payments and/or payment plans must be completed by August 9, 2019.  Secondary students enrolled in a Virtual Elective and/or Virtual AP class will not be able to access their courses until paid.

*ALL fees must be paid in order for your child to attend a field trip or participate in extra-curriculars or athletics.*
