To apply for enrollment for the 2016-2017 school year, parents must submit an enrollment application for their student. Parents will receive an automated e-mail immediately after the application is received. After application submission, a staff member will contact parents with enrollment opportunities for their child.

What do I do if my child receives a space?
Congratulations, your student is now allowed to register at for the 2016-2017 school year! After being contacted by Horizon Honors, you will a limited amount of time to accept your enrollment opportunity. After acceptance, you will then begin the registration process.
What if my child is on the waiting list?
When a space becomes available, the parents of the first student on the waiting list will be called. If that student declines his/her space, then the next student will be called, etc. Students will remain on the waiting list for the entire 2016-2017 school year. Families who do not receive a spot during the 2016-2017 school year must complete the enrollment process again for the 2017-2018 school year.
What if one of my children receives a spot, but a sibling is on the waiting list?
Horizon Honors expects a high level of parental involvement in the learning process. In recognition of this commitment, enrollment preference is given to siblings of students enrolled if there is space available.
Can my child be placed at a grade higher/lower based on his/her ability level instead of age?
Students are placed according to age, the last grade completed, and pre-assessment scores.
Why doesn’t the waiting list roll over from year to year?
The waiting list restarts every year for a number of reasons. We are not always sure if families are still interested in Horizon Honors for the following school year. We also make changes to curriculum, activities, etc. and want to make sure that families come to an Info Session, get notified of the changes, and complete an enrollment application. Finally, having a Lottery each year is the only fair way to guarantee space availability.
If you have any questions about the enrollment process, please call the Main Office at (480) 659-3000.
