Class Size

Unless otherwise noted, classes are restricted to 18 participants to ensure a quality experience and ample individual attention.


All instructors are professionally trained and have practical teaching experience in their areas of instruction; most are Southeast professors. Individual classes that incorporate laboratory experiments (e.g., the Crime Scene Investigation) or that are physically active (e.g., Wilderness Survival) will have an assistant to provide additional guidance.


Each course enrollment includes a Horizons t-shirt. If you are enrolled in more than one course, you will receive multiple shirts.
