Second HOPE Christian School planned for Racine

RACINE, WIS. — HOPE Christian Schools will open a second school in the city of Racine for the 2017-18 school year. HOPE Christian School: Veritas will serve grades K5-3, with plans to add a grade each year up to 8th grade.

In its first year, HOPE Veritas will operate in the same building as HOPE Via at 3502 Douglas Avenue in Racine. HOPE Via is in its second year and serves 163 scholars in K5-5th grade, with plans to add a grade each year up to 8th grade. HOPE Veritas will move to its own location for the 2018-19 school year.

“HOPE Via has a waiting list for nearly all of its grades,” says Ciji Pittman, managing director for HOPE Christian Schools in Racine. “In addition, many of our HOPE Via families travel a distance to attend HOPE Via. Opening a second location in Racine will allow us to meet the needs of our current families, plus those who would like access to a HOPE education.”

Like HOPE Via, HOPE Veritas will participate in the Racine Parental Choice Program. Qualifying students can receive a voucher to attend HOPE through this program. Enrollment in that program begins February 1. Anyone interested in enrolling in HOPE Veritas should call 262-800-9021 or visit

HOPE Veritas is the eighth school in the HOPE Christian Schools network, which serves nearly 2,500 scholars and their families throughout Milwaukee and Racine.

Each HOPE school has a Latin name with a unique meaning. “Via” means “way” and “veritas” means “truth.” The Racine HOPE schools derive their names from the Biblical passage John 14:6 in which Jesus calls himself “the Way” and “the Truth.”

“The names of our Racine schools are an excellent reminder that the foundation of our schools is Christ,” Pittman says.

HOPE Christian Schools is a network of seven Christian college preparatory schools serving more than 2,000 scholars and their families in Milwaukee and Racine. Each HOPE school focuses on the “3 Cs” – Christ. College. Character. HOPE scholars in K4-12th grades receive a values-based education that develops knowledge and cultivates character – the fundamental traits they need to become inspirations to their families, leaders in their communities, and successes in the workplace.
