While many students enter our academic program behind, they begin to thrive academically and holistically at Hope Academy.
STANDARDIZED TEST RESULTS
Though our school’s academic performance is quite good, we tell parents here at Hope to not read too much into standardized test scores. At Hope, report cards include grades, but we also evaluate a student’s growth in Christian character. Standardized tests cannot measure virtues such as respect, wisdom, discipline, humility, honesty, and love—that requires discerning parents and teachers. We see the following indicators as equally—if not more—important than our standardized test scores.
SPIRITUAL GROWTH & STRONG URBAN FAMILIES
Our ultimate goal is to see students and families living faithful lives. Our 2013 accreditation & 2014 parent surveys helped us see these deeper indicators of success.
CHRISTIAN PROFESSIONS & CHRISTIAN CHARACTER
91% of students believe Hope has been essential to their development of a Christian worldview. More than half of our students in grades 6-12 have committed or recommitted their lives to Christ through Hope.
98% of our parents believe Hope is essential to their children’s spiritual growth through teachers modeling Christ and providing a high-quality, God-centered education.
HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION & COLLEGE ENROLLMENT
As of 2016, we have graduated 63 students in five senior classes.
