Growing Hope Update: The Biggest Ribbon Cutting You’ve Ever Seen

By God’s amazing grace, Phase I of the Growing Hope Capital Campaign was completed on time and under budget.

Last week, we pulled out the biggest pair of scissors Hope Academy has ever seen, and hosted a Ribbon Cutting to celebrate our new science wing, computer lab, and 4th grade classrooms. Click to enjoy a snippet!

Lord-willing, this will not be the last time you see those scissors. In fact, we are hoping to use them 11 more times — once to christen Phase II of our Growing Hope expansion to make room for 250 more students, and 10 more times to celebrate the opening of 10 Hope Academy-style schools nationwide. We are trusting the Lord for the remaining $625,000 to make this possible.
