The last thing people expect to find on the corner of Chicago & Franklin in South Minneapolis is something hopeful. Drugs – maybe, poverty – yes, but certainly not excellence or virtue.  

Against all odds, urban youth at Hope Academy are becoming the first in their families to graduate from high school, receive full-ride college scholarships, and rise up as leaders in our community. Inner-city children are growing in faith and virtue, overcoming unbelievable hardship through incredible, God-centered support. 

Join us for a Growing Hope Tour to catch a glimpse of something truly remarkable taking place in our city.


Growing Hope Tours are for community members interested in learning about Hope Academy. If you are interested in sending your child to Hope Academy, click here to request Admissions information.
