HOPE Christian Schools is a network of eight college-preparatory schools in Milwaukee and Racine, Wisconsin.
Our mission is to deliver the 3 Cs – Christ. College. Character.® – to the children, families, and communities we are privileged to serve. Nearly 3,000 scholars are enrolled in our seven K-8 schools and one high school.
HOPE participates in both the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program and the Racine Parental Choice Program (commonly known as “school choice”). Through these programs, a HOPE education is tuition-free for qualifying families. HOPE is privileged to be a part of Wisconsin’s nationwide leadership in school choice.
WHAT SETS HOPE APART?
THE 3 Cs
We share the unconditional love of Christ with our scholars and support them in developing a deepening relationship with their Savior. College is talked about from early grades on, so that scholars envision themselves as lifelong learners. Character formation is critical to academic excellence, because it forms the internal motivation for good decision making and a fulfilling life beyond the classroom.
We meet children where they are and help them reach their full potential. Assessments help teachers understand the amount of learning growth a child achieves over time so progress can be celebrated or instruction adjusted. Our K-8 schools are growing scholars faster in reading and math than the average school nationally. In addition, our high school scholars demonstrate commitment to and readiness for college.

LEARNING THAT LASTS
We combine rigorous academics with a character formation journey for scholars and their teachers. This journey cultivates a strong sense of Identity (I am a child of God in Christ!), Purpose (How can I best serve God and others?) and Actions (How do I live out my Identity and Purpose with Christian virtues?) HOPE scholars form the internally motivated character necessary for good decisions both inside and outside the classroom.
THE VALUE OF A NETWORK
Our staff and scholars benefit from our network of experienced educators who share best practices and learn from one another regularly. We provide a career path full of opportunities, enabling our staff to reach their full potential while helping scholars reach theirs.
LEADING IN MILWAUKEE AND BEYOND
The story of HOPE is really a story of God working through people. It’s the story of unlocking potential in God’s children and inspiring a sense of purpose that brings lasting change to lives, families and communities. And it all started with a walk through a Milwaukee neighborhood.
THIS IS HOPE
