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. Characterformation 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

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 that is necessary to make good decisions both inside and outside the classroom.


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.
