Welcome to HOPE Prima

HOPE Christian School: Prima was named among the best schools in America by education researcher Samuel Casey Carter and is featured, along with 11 extraordinary schools in his book, On Purpose: How Great School Cultures Form Strong Character.

HOPE Prima provides scholars with a values-based education that develops their knowledge and cultivates their character – the fundamental traits students need to become inspirations to their families, leaders in the community and successes in the workplace.

Our school offers a rigorous academic program that is focused on raising student achievement in an environment of encouragement and support. We proudly participate in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program.

Wisconsin School Report Cards

As a school choice program participant, we are required to provide this link to our report card: HOPE Prima’s Report Card. We are also required to provide parents and guardians with a list of schools available to you in the choice program: Educational Options. Wisconsin is a state that values parents’ ability to choose the school that is best for their child. We know parents have many choices, and we are thankful for our families who have chosen HOPE.

At HOPE, children receive the 3 Cs every day: Christ.College.Character. Academics are supported by character growth together with the warm and unconditional love of Christ. All 3 Cs are blended together to support the growth of our scholars in the classroom and beyond.

If you have any questions about the three-fold education we provide, please contact HOPE Prima Principal Chelsea Prochnow, or our Executive Director Zach Verriden. It is our privilege to serve you.
