As parents of two students at Decatur's newest school, we are huge fans of Hope Academy! The highly qualified faculty and administration is among the best we have ever known. We have found the teachers to be caring, welcoming of parental involvement and excited about teaching our children. The school uses a balanced calendar with three week breaks every quarter which include optional intercession enrichment opportunities and a shorter summer break. The state of the art facility is bright and cheerful and creates a positive, safe and healthy atmoshpere of learning for our children. The elementary classrooms are set in pods shared by two grades and the middle school is equipped with a fantastic science lab and art lab. The entire school is equipped with computer technology and closed circuit television as well. The gymnasium and cafetorium are spectacular. And, the band and choir facilities are awesome, too!
