Our Son is an incoming Freshmen 2014. We have visited the school many times spoke with staff, reviewed their curriculum and also read some the reviews. Being a homeschooled parent and allowing our son to attend High School was not an easy choice. If you are looking for a small school, a faith base school, high academics school, 100 percent college acceptance where they put God first this school is an answer to your prayers. I challenge you to take a visit and see for yourself . It is not your traditional High School if you are looking for that then, this is not the place, but if you are looking to step outside the box this is the place for your child. Take a leap of faith we did. you will not regret it.

I would highly recommend Hope to anyone who wants to attend a faith based school with a college prep level of academics. It's a great place to go to school and you should check it out!!!!!

This school does not do a satisfactory job of teaching high school students what they should know. The school also does not take appropriate disciplinary action when it should be taken. The school's learning environment doesn't allow those who are serious about their education to learn and it also places more weight upon athletics than academics. If you want to get your money's worth, do not send your child here as it is little more than a glorified hang out that doesn't challenge academically fit students.

I love the school s respectiful environment. The teachers are all very helpful and pleasant to work with. Everyone in the school from the President on down to the office support has shown a personal touch in knowing me, as well as my student. My Grandson came to Chicago Hope Academy, from public school, this is the first time he has received A s or B s during his school year. Chicago Hope Academy staff has encouraged and motivated him to apply himself to be a better student.

Chicago Hope is great! It feels like one big (but not too big) family! The teachers are genuinely concerned for the students and work hard to help students succeed. Students can be sincere about their faith, and Hope is a safe place for them to grow. I highly recommend Chicago Hope!

There is no school like Chicago Hope Academy. There are always things to work on as an administration and student body and Hope recognizes this more than anything. This school is a safe place where students are offered help throughout the day and Saturdays. Teachers are always accessible and have high expectations that prepare them for this globally competitive world. Class sizes are small, making it conducive for academic success. I have taught here for several years and have been blessed by the level of maturity that has taken place - academically and spiritually. These kids are my heart and soul; reminding me every single day why I do what I do.

I've reviewed this school in great detail. The staff is great, the students respectful and the academics solid. My son will attend as a freshman in the fall.

Chicago Hope can be a better school. they mean well but they allow certain students to get away w/dings certain things that most students cannot. Maybe their parents line the pockets of the administration so they will look the other way. ALL students should be treated equally and fairly regardless of financial status.

Chicago Hope is an amazing resource for Christ centered education for teens living in a society that is exposing teens to philosophies and content that is unsuitable for them. Chicago Hope is built on a firm foundation of faith and obedience to Christ. Teachers are sincere Christ followers who give as much as they can of themselves. Chicago Hope is a great resource for education and opportunities for individual growth and development.

As an educational consultant, I have observed and worked with dedicated teachers who passionately desire to make a difference in the lives and learning of the students. They offer excellent teaching and lessons that engage the students. They work with students who come in with great needs educationally and environmentally. This is a school that is personal demonstrating commitment and love for all the students and their families. It is a Christian school in name and realty.

class size is small which allows more onoe on one attention to students, however staff is very judgemental and can make the experience uncomfortable for students that is why i pulled my child out of that school

My experience with Chicago Hope Academy is that the teachers are very supportive and the administration is available to help every family. There are a lot of resources available to the students that help them be successful. Students with a desire to achieve become successful. Corruption is not the right word. There are some growing pains from being an up-and-coming school. Concerns are actively addressed by the administration. The overall quality of the education at Chicago Hope is excellent. Classes are small and students receive lots of individual attention.

Chicago Hope Academy is a school built on trust, love, and loyalty.The students usually build a family and love each other. It serves its community and strives to be the best in spiritual, academic, and athletic aspects. The problem with Chicago Hope is corruption. There is a new staff or a lot of replaced members because of this and it hurts the income become donors back out also. There has been sex scandels, athletes play when they are ineligible, and money corruption comes into play also.
