HOPE Christian School: Fortis

While the pursuit of academic excellence is a hallmark of HOPE, we are committed to graduating well-rounded individuals. Arts, athletics, enrichment, community service and worship activities enhance the student experience.


HOPE's arts program provides instruction and performance opportunities for students, while exposing them to new experiences designed to expand their horizons and enrich their lives. We offer music classes for our Kindergarten through fourth-grade scholars. Fifth- and sixth-grade scholars have the opportunity to compete in Milwaukee's Mad Hot Ballroom Dance Competition. In addition, students have opportunities to attend and participate in music opportunities inside and outside of school, including performances by the Milwaukee Florentine Opera Company.


Organized and intramural sports play a key role in the education offered at HOPE. Our program ensures that each student enjoys the benefits of exercise, while learning important life lessons about discipline, hard work, sacrifice, teamwork and character.

We offer the following sports:

  • Fall - Co-ed soccer (6-8th grade)
  • Winter - Boys (7-8th grade) and girls (6-8th grade) basketball

From ice skating and roller skating to bowling and Bucks' games, HOPE seeks to provide a complete and exciting experience outside of class for all students.

Community Service

HOPE's service-learning program provides an opportunity for students to apply what they have learned in school to real needs in the community. In addition to making a positive difference for our neighbors, HOPE students build meaningful relationships and make new friends by volunteering.


HOPE is a school founded on Christian values, and the spiritual development of all students is encouraged through individual and group activities. Through daily Word of God classes and weekly chapel services, students are given the opportunity to hear and learn from the Bible as well as to respond to God in worship. We seek to instill biblical principles in students that will guide them by faith during their high school and college years -- and beyond.
