The Future is Bright! (A look at 2021-22)

In the midst of real challenges, the light of Christ is shining at Hope Academy. We think you’ll be encouraged by the fruits of this work, as illustrated in our 2021-2022 Annual Report. Here are a few highlights:

For the Youth of the City

Although the lingering effects of a global pandemic, social isolation, and cultural tensions were very real in Minneapolis, Hope Academy remained focused on a remarkable, classical, Christian education for hundreds of youth in our city—delivered by amazing teachers and supported by faithful partners.

Pressing Forward

While the disruptions of the past few years took a toll on students and staff, we continue to see positive progress indicators and are taking stock of the work yet to be done.

Partnering with Urban Families

Hundreds of families were supported through home visits, conferences, and meaningful connections with staff throughout the year.

Faith & H.O.P.E.

From athletics to mission trips, to our student leadership team and house system, students grew in faith and the H.O.P.E. virtues of Honor for God and others, Optimism for the future, Perseverance in adversity, and Excellence in all things.

Bright Futures for Our Graduates!

Seniors continued to navigate high school in a pandemic and grow in faith, determination, and leadership. “Our class is resilient,” shared Elliot, a 2022 Hope Academy graduate. “We have been ‘more than conquerors through Him that loved us.’” We’re thanking God for:

Generous Partners + Invested Families

Together, 1,043 donors + 354 Hope families provided 587 students with a remarkable, God-centered education at Hope Academy.
