Children begin learning foreign languages in grade school. General music class includes instruction in recorder, trumpet, piano and guitar. There is also a wonderful art and dance/drama program. General education includes individualized reading and math. Parental involvement is encouraged and that helps me stay connected with my child''s educational growth. My whole family has had a wonderful experience at this school.

We have 2 children enrolled in NHA and have been extraordinarily pleased by the education they have received. With the low student:teacher ratio, the teachers get to know each child and family in order to work together to get the best possible outcomes from each child. In speaking with other parents who have their children in various private/public school options, I feel that my children are getting a very competitive education and are thriving at New Hope.

I recommend NHA. My 2 sons graduated from 8th grade, attended then the science and tech program at ERHS and one now graduated this May 2013 from Cornell University with a degree in Civil Engineering and my other son is a sophomore in Mechanical Engineering at CalTech in Pasadena, Calif.

New Hope Academy has truly enabled my three children and fostered a love for learning. The teachers are nurturing. The academics are challenging. There are strong art, music and sports programs. The high school has an international component which exposes the students to various cultures.
