Welcome to HOPE Christian Schools in Racine

Thank you for your interest in HOPE Christian Schools. HOPE is a network of eight Christian college-preparatory schools in Milwaukee and Racine, WI. Our mission is rooted in the 3 Cs - Christ. College. Character.® HOPE offers a values-based education that develops knowledge and cultivates character - the fundamental traits scholars need to become inspirations to their families, leaders in their communities and successes in the workplace.




HOPE Schools in Racine

HOPE Via opened its doors in 2015 with 83 scholars in K5-3. By God’s grace, in 2016-17 we’ve grown to 163 scholars serving grades K5-5, and we maintain a waiting list for nearly every grade. We also know that nearly one half of our current HOPE Via scholars live on the south side of Racine and travel to attend HOPE Via.

To better serve HOPE Via’s current families, as well as serve those on our waiting list, it is time for HOPE to grow in Racine by adding a second location to serve the south side of the city.

HOPE Choices in Racine for 2017-18

The best way to grow responsibly is to start a new school within HOPE Via.

  • ·     The new school will operate completely separate from HOPE Via, with a separate principal, staff and classrooms.

  • ·     HOPE Via and the new school will share the HOPE Via facility for the 2017-18 school year.
          There is sufficient capacity to accommodate the two schools for one year. Minimal construction will take place in preparation.

  • ·     For the 2017-18 school year, HOPE Via will enroll grades K5-6 and the new school will enroll grades K5-3.
           Each school plans to add a grade each year until we serve grades K-8.

  • ·     We will seek facilities for the new HOPE school on the south side of Racine, with plans to make use of the new facilities for the 2018-19 school year.

  • ·     The name of the new school will be HOPE Veritas. “Veritas” means “truth” in Latin.

Enrollment Opens February 1

In accordance with the rules set for us by the Wisconsin Department of Instruction, any child who wishes to enroll in either HOPE Via or HOPE Veritas will need to enroll in HOPE Via for the 2017-18 school year. Click here to enroll and fill out your enrollment paperwork for HOPE Via.

  • Once you complete the online application, you will be able to indicate to our staff that you wish to be part of the new school, HOPE Veritas.

  • If you choose HOPE Veritas, your child will attend HOPE Veritas within the HOPE Via facility for the 2017-18 school year and move to the new facility for the 2018-19 school year.

We are so thankful to be serving the families of HOPE Via and the community of Racine. We are also extremely grateful for the partnership of our HOPE Via parents as we work together to provide an education focused on Christ. College. Character. The success of this partnership is what makes it possible for us to grow and serve you better as well as serve more families in Racine.
