Hope Academy

The mission of Hope Academy is to provide a positive, nurturing, and collaborative educational environment where we ensure the intellectual, social, and physical development of every student.

Founded in 1998, Hope Academy began this journey with a goal to build an academic foundation for all of its students in a warm nurturing yet structured environment.  To address the emergent academic needs of its students, Hope Academy administers:

  • NWEA Assessment three times a year to monitor students' progress All Grades (K Winter & Spring)
  • M-STEP is administered in the Spring of each year to grades 3 - 8
  • Early Literacy/Mathematic Assessment is administered to grades K-3
  • Aims Assessment is administered to grades K-3
  • PSAT is administered in the Spring on each year to grade 8

Teachers utilize the data derived from these assessments as well as local formative and summative assessments to:

  • Create lesson plans
  • Drive instructional practices,
  • Determine the goals for the Academy
  • Increase academic achievement

We enrich our students’ education by offering Music; Performing Arts; Physical Education; Instructional Technology; Science; and Science Labs for both Elementary and Middle School Students; Core Subject Intervention classes; and students with special needs and those who are exceeding the standards.
