Our school is a true community with families who truly care for one another. Our teachers are creative and innovative and take the time to get to know each child. Academically I feel that this school excels in creating excellent writing skills.

Hope has caring teachers and a hand-on approach to learning. We love the combination of learning at home and at school. "Homestudy" guides are thorough and easy to follow. A real community of education!

Hope academy partners with families through a university model meaning the children go to school 3 days a week and get to be home-schooled 2 days. We have absolutely loved the extra time at home with our 3 children and love the balance that Hope provides. The staff at Hope are gifted and passionate individuals who want to see our children thrive. Hope meets children at their individual level and the curriculum is deep allowing kids to discuss broad topics and think beyond the surface. We have a kindergartener, 3rd grader and 5th grader. All 3 children love school and show more and more indepependence and initiative in achieving excellence in their home study work and projects.

Hope Academy offers an outstanding environment for children to grow and thrive. The staff and administration are incredibly talented and fully invested in the students. I love the community that exists at Hope. Our daughter is thriving socially, academically, and spiritually due to the environment at Hope Academy. I am thoroughly enjoying the educational time with my daughter at home, and the collaboration with her classroom teacher is wonderful experience. The students at Hope embody the qualities of deeply caring, responsible and articulate citizens at a young age. I highly recommend this quality school. K. Grey

Hope Academy is unlike any other school that we have ever found. Our daughter was very intimidated about entering a large public school kindergarten after spending three years in a small pre-school setting. After failing to qualify for any of the local charter schools through their lottery system, we weren't sure where to turn next. Fortunately, we learned about Hope Academy from some friends and we have never looked back. Hope offers the best of both worlds. It allows us to send our children to a private, Christian School with small class sizes and daily prayer and worship without the typical cost of a larger five-day private school. It also allows my wife to spend two days a week home-schooling our children without having to worry about providing her own curriculum. The teachers at Hope are extremely caring and supportive and the administrative staff is outstanding. I would highly recommend Hope Academy to anyone who would be interested.

Hope Academy is absolutely amazing! Hope has changed our family for the better, bringing us all closer together, closer to God, and providing us with an awesome community of friends who are passionate about creating a generation of children who share God's word throughout the world. The teachers and staff are the best out there! They are kind, caring, loving, organized, and passionate. The curriculum is ever-changing based on research and the needs of the students. It has challenged my child and the growth she has experienced academically is phenomenal. Being able to spend two days at home with her, co-teaching her, has been incredible. The guidance and support from the teacher is always there and together my child and I are able to learn and experience the highs (and lows!) of education. I am the main influence in her educational career and that is priceless. I highly recommend Hope!!

I had never seen a teacher--much less a group of teachers--that visibly pour their hearts into kids. Each teacher and staff member at Hope clearly loves the Lord and love the children they teach. The ability of the program itself to merge learning concepts with biblical principles is astonishing. I thought the math program was weak because we were transitioning from Singapore math and my kiddos were further along. But after being in it for a bit, I see both forms of math have unique qualities....though the current math program is our preference as my child is much less stressed, is thinking critically, and knows things that I'm sure I didn't know until middle school. The word study and writing are a source of enjoyment as well--never thought my kid would come out of 2nd grade writing cursive! From the co-teacher aspect, I never thought of myself as having the ability to teach, but God has been good and we look forward to Home Study...it takes time to get used to, but it's worth it. My kids aren't tired and irritable as they were when going 5 days. The work is laid out clearly and though the projects are extensive, they are planned into the weekly home study work as well.

This school has helped my child grow socially. Small classes are perfect for providing extra attention. The building is bright and beautiful. A downside is that the Math program is weak. My child is receiving tutoring over the summer to cover the gaps. The projects are interesting but take more time than I expected. The teachers are great and work with the parents. A child's assignments can be changed if needed. The flexibility in the schedule gives our family time to work on home study together.

God's spirit beams throughout this school. The curriculum is challenging, yet enjoyable for our 4th grader. She has excelled spiritually, emotionally, and academically since making the transition from public school.

Hope is more than a school. This unique University School Model couples 3 days of professional instruction with 2 days of home study. The home study curriculum is prepared by the professional teachers. I never dreamed that our family would home school in any capacity, but this has been a great balance. We have an integral role in teaching our kids and get the joy of watching them "get it," but rely on the expertise of exceptional teachers who drive the curriculum. Everything is taught from a Biblical worldview, with the mission of equipping our kids to be college-ready, servant leaders. Both of my kids are challenged by the research-based, hands-on curriculum. They are well-loved by the teachers and Administration. Kids are thriving in this place!

This University-Model school is so unique. My kids are taught three days a week at school by certified teachers. I co-teach the other two days a week at home. I love this opportunity to partner with the teachers. This is a Christian school-really living "the word." My kids have grown -especially through the interdisciplinary projects. The small class sizes allow for quality instruction. We are thrilled to have found Hope!
