Core Distinctive #1
Faith-Based, Classical Education
The hope of Hope Academy is God.
Classes gather for worship, and our curriculum is informed
by God’s Word. Teachers seek to shepherd the hearts of all
students, that they would become like Christ, the master teacher.
Core Distinctive #2
Discipline & High Expectations
As a ‘No-Excuses’ school, we see discipline producing character and achievement. In 4th grade students begin Latin, and a classical, college prep curriculum over a 10-month school year.
Core Distinctive #3
Excellence is only possible when parents are actively involved. Parents sign our parent covenant and are required to participate in seven events—including a home visit, conferences, and two Saturday school days—and pay fair share tuition and volunteer.
Core Distinctive #4
Accountability & Support
Excellence requires holding teachers, students and parents accountable. Our teachers are held to the highest professional and moral standards. Older students attend academic support if they fail to finish homework assignments. Parents who miss events have two weeks for a make-up, or their kids must stay home.
Core Distinctive #5
Affordable for All
Most Christian schools charge tuition to cover 90% of costs and raise 10%. At Hope, nearly 90% of our costs are covered by generous giving! Family tuition is determined on a sliding scale, and our Partners cover the rest.
