Horizon Christian School is located in beautiful Hood River, Oregon just 60 miles east of Portland, Oregon on the Columbia River. Views of the mighty Columbia, majestic Mt. Adams to the north, and Mt. Hood to the south provide a picturesque setting for the valley known for it’s fruit and recreational opportunities. Students come from a radius of 30 miles in all directions – across the river in Washington state, east to The Dalles, south to Parkdale and Mt. Hood, and west to Cascade Locks. A bus service provides transportation for those students across the river and to the east.

In November 2006 Horizon moved into a beautiful, new state of the art facility on eight acres of scenic property. The completed portion of the 51,000 square foot building includes spacious classrooms, up to date science labs, technology lab, full art room, a media center, band/music room, offices, meeting rooms, play area and soccer field. The gymnasium and locker rooms are expected to be completed early in 2008. Additional phases will enable the school to complete the cafeteria and stage, and additional classroom space when needed. You can view the construction results as it took place, here.
Horizon Christian School has a rich history dating back to 1977. Horizon was founded when two recognized Christian schools determined that the community would best be served by a single, non-denominational school. In 2001, with 41 years of education between them, Summit Christian School (formerly Baptist Christian School, founded in 1977) and the Shepherd of the Valley Christian School (founded in 1985) merged and became Horizon Christian School.
