Our Affiliation & Accreditation

Horizon Christian School's Affiliation


Horizon Christian School is a ministry of Horizon Community Church.  We are a non-profit corporation organized under the laws of the State of Oregon.  The school is parent-sponsored and governed by the Elder Board of Horizon Community Church. They set policy and direct the schools.


Horizon Christian High School is accredited by AdvancED/Cognia and meets the requirements for graduation of the Oregon State Department of Education. Acceptance by the Oregon University System guarantees that Horizon Christian High School graduates will have full access to the college and/or university of their choice.


The Horizon Christian School’s Statement of Faith presents Christian tenets that are basic to all evangelical Christian teachings. We recognize that there are specific doctrinal areas that are unique to the varied denominations that are represented at HCS among both teachers and students.  Although Horizon Christian School is a ministry of Horizon Community Church, we desire to serve the Christian community at large. Therefore, the schools hold only to the doctrines contained within the declared Statement of Faith.  Silence on a doctrine should not be taken as agreement or disagreement with that particular doctrine, only that it will not be an integrated element of instruction within the curriculum.  There will be no attempt to promote specific denominational distinction at Horizon Christian School. There will be much effort to promote a Christ-centered worldview and recognition of Christ as "the way, the truth, and the life” by which there is "no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.”  We desire to be united in the salvation and love of Christ and avoid any dissension that may arise due to denominational differences among "brothers in Christ.”
