Hope Academy has been a great choice for my son who is on the Autism spectrum and struggles with developmental and social challenges. We were so lucky to have found Hope Academy b/c we were struggling to find a school that was a good fit and that would be able to work with my son's challenges daily. We cannot speak highly enough about the teaching faculty and administration for all they`ve done to help and encourage my son. I would encourage anyone looking for a place where their child will be cared for as the unique individual that they are to stop by and inquire. You will be super impressed by the friendly and helpful office staff and faculty. These people are some of the most dedicated people who put your child`s needs first! Call today and ask about a tour. You won`t be disappointed! Hope Academy will give you just that-Hope-Hope that your child can have and deserves a place that has a loving atmosphere of learning to go to school every day. Blessings, T.D.

We as parents of HOPE ACADEMY could not ask for a better school. Our son Joseph looks forward to school everyday. He jumps out the car and is so excited to be there. He loves loves loves his teachers and the school administration and has best friends there. We could not think of sending him anywhere else.
