Earn College Credit
at Horizon High School
Horizon High School, in conjunction with Rio Salado Community College, makes it easy for students to earn up to two years of college credit without ever leaving campus.
    All of our dual credit teachers are certified as community college instructors and are evaluated annually to ensure they meet college teaching standards. Each of our courses corresponds to an equivalent course at a community college, meaning students are guaranteed full transferability of dual enrollment credit to Arizona public colleges and universities (credit is awarded to students with grades of "C" or better).

    Still wondering if dual enrollment is right for your student? Use this website to research it fully, as well as to learn how to register and stay up-to-date on important deadlines and changes.
