School Reviews

Chicago Hope Academy has been a great choice for our son. Before attending Chicago Hope our son was not involved in any organized sports. Chicago Hope encourages every student to participate in a sport or extracurricular activity. Our son began running cross country in the fall, wrestling in the winter, and track in the spring. He has since dropped wrestling to participate in indoor track during the winter season. This has been a great experience for him as it has provided a place where he can feel part of a team, understand the work it takes to be an athlete, and the benefits of working hard to achieve progress toward a goal. The administration and staff at Chicago Hope have been fantastic. They are very receptive to parent involvement and are willing to work with each student to make their high school experience a success regardless of the student's future goals regarding college, trade school, or whatever choice is made. We have been very satisfied with our experience.
