School Notes

  • HOPE Academys educational philosophy has been influenced by educational research and professional classroom experience. Most significantly, 2 Peter 1:5-10, to add first to your faith virtue and then knowledge, as had the greatest influence on our approach regarding both the academic and spiritual development of our students.Our goal is to foster a desire for learning and cultivate the unique gifts and strengths of every child.
  • Our academic program can be characterized as inquiry oriented, project based, cohesive, and academically and instructionally differentiated. Students at HOPE Academy are most often seen working in small groups or pairs, engaged in some form of hands-on application of what they have learned, or engaging in a process of investigation to explore an idea more deeply.
  • Students complete two to four projects per year related to their unit of study. These projects extend students learning, allow them to make broader connections and develop an in depth understanding of their subject. Students at all grades present their projects to both peers and adults. Students are able to speak conversationally about their learning and teach others in the process.
  • HOPE Academy pairs an excellent academic program with Biblically based character development resulting in higher academic achievement and strong moral character.We believe people learn best when it is relevant, in-depth, and they are able to make broader connections between ideas.
  • People retain and making meaning of what they learn when they apply it to prior knowledge and have an emotional response.
  • Learning is best achieved by doing and teaching, therefore, students should have an active role in the classroom.
  • Collaboration among students is a highly effective tool to increase learning and understanding.
  • The role of a teacher is to engage students through an exploratory adventure by engaging them in higher levels of thinking such as questioning, inquiry and other instructional strategies.
  • Textbooks are intended to serve as a resource, however multiple resources are necessary in order for students to understand multiple perspectives and explore ideas and events more deeply.
  • It is imperative that we help our students develop a Christian worldview and that it is the lens through which we present all content. Learning can be assessed in a variety of ways.
  • We want the students to make meaning with what they are learning and not simply restate information.

HOPE Academy is a very special place where each student is valued and poured into. As parents, HOPE acknowledges that we should be the primary influence in our child's life and they come alongside you to educate and spiritually strengthen your child. Our daughter has grown leaps and bounds, not just academically but spiritually and mentally in two years at HOPE. I can't say enough good things and would highly recommend HOPE to anyone that is looking for a wholesome Christian education, that is academically challenging, and allows you to be a teacher for your child.

I am a 6th grader at Hope Academy and feel like I could not be in a better place. I love how they care about how I am learning and they teach us to be confident in what we learn. One of my favorite things about Hope Academy is my class. I have been with my friends for 4 years now and we know each other so well. At lunch we are usually the last to enter our eating area, but we always try to fit our whole class in one table. I also love how my teachers incorporate the gospel into any lesson, from math to P.E. Having the kind of teachers that I have, I feel so privileged being taught by them. They always encourage us to be ourselves, and when I do not understand something, I always feel like I can tell them. I love Hope Academy!

I just finished my first year attending HOPE Academy as a 7th grader. I have found my school! I am supported by teachers and staff every day. I am encouraged to get out of my comfort zone and challenge myself, all while receiving strength and guidance to be successful. Academics and worship are important to me, and HOPE Academy provides me with both. Project-based learning was a new concept for me. I enjoy how it allows me to be creative. I love going to school three days a week and learning from home the other two days. The structure allows me to schedule my extra-curricular activities on home days. We celebrate big and share with family, friends, and community what we've learned at the end of each quarter. We volunteer within the community. We learn life lessons and scholastics, and I know I'll come out of this school better prepared for life. We are a school but we are also one big family.

Hope Academy has been an absolute blessing to our family. The staff, administration, and school community welcomed us with open arms, everyone made our transition to a new school so smooth and warm. My husband and I both have education backgrounds and have taught or worked in schools for 15 plus years. Both as teachers and as parents we have been impressed with the academics, the high expectations for students, as well as the support for a student's who may be struggling. Students are pushed to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, and encouraged to add value to those around them. We have watched our son grow in every area, he has not always been a "fan" of school, but absolutely loved being at Hope, the friends he made, his teachers, praise and worship, and of course recess ;). We are thankful for the dedication of the teachers and administration!

The hands-on learning approach really helps my learning feel more tangible and makes concepts easier to understand and remember. If you are looking for a unique school experience, check out Hope Academy!
