School Notes

  • In 2018, Hope made the huge leap of faith to open a full-service educational program for children age 6 weeks to Kindergarten, as well as before and after school care for older children. Today, families enjoy Christian education on a campus offering meals, special programming, and the same exceptional preparation for school they have always provided.

My family loves Hope Academy! We have our 2 sons (3 years old and 15 months) at Hope and have had a wonderful experience! My 3-year-old's vocabulary and knowledge of preschool level topics took off once he was enrolled (came from an in-home daycare). The size of the classes (small) and the amount of play time the kids get outside is awesome! The administration makes me feel very heard and cared for and the teachers are all so kind!
