Congratulations to Malachi Thompson, 5th Grade, who has been qualified for participation in the Metropolitan Educational Cooperative Service Unit Spelling Bee! He will be representing Hope Academy to compete with the rest of MN! You are welcome to come cheer him on at the Regional Bee on March 19th at 5:30 pm in Neighborhood House at Wellstone Center, 179 Robie St. East, Saint Paul, MN, 55107. The champion will then move on to the 2019 Scripps National Spelling Bee in D.C. in May. Go Malachi!


The nurse’s office is in need of girl’s leggings and old uniforms (most-needed is LS boys pants and LS girls jumpers). They will take used or new leggings (in good shape/no holes if used). They can also use NEW packs of size small underwear for both boys and girls.


Hope Academy closings due to bad weather will correspond to those of the Minneapolis Public School District.  Listen to WCCO 830-AM radio, watch WCCO Channel 4 TV, or check the website for school closings due to snow or sever weather.  Check here for the school listings: SCHOOL CLOSINGS .

PLEASE NOTE: We are NOT “Hope Community Academy.” We are “Hope Academy – Minneapolis”


To cover the costs of staff supervising students, parents who are late to pick up their student will be charged a flat fee of $10 for every 15 minutes late at the end of the event. At the end of the school day (officially 4:25), this will be starting at 4:40pm. This fee will be charged to your tuition bill.


The next phase of our “Growing Hope” campaign includes the building of a new gym! In order to continue this work, the Parking Lot on 24th will be closed until further notice. Please plan to find alternative street parking if you visit the school. Remember, during every school day there is NO PARKING in front of the school between 9:00a – 10:00a and 3:00p – 5:00p.
