Cost Per Student
Hope Academy uses the nationally-normed NWEA MAP standardized math & reading tests to measure proficiency in grades 3-9. Public schools in Minnesota use the MCAs to measure proficiency in grades 3-11. “Local Schools” are public schools within a 2.5 mi radius of Hope Academy, where at least 50% of students are low-income (qualify for Free & Reduced Lunch) and at least 70% of students are students of color. Academic results are from 2019. Data provided for context, not as an exact comparison.
90% of Hope Academy's cost per student is provided for by private donors like you.
