As a University-Model® School, HOPE Academy partners with parents in the academic and spiritual development of their children through a unique schedule that supports parents as the primary influence in their children’s lives.
Students receive a blend of on-campus learning with classmates and professional educators and at-home learning with their parents using instructional plans designed by their teachers.
The University-Model® school structure strengthens and equips families and provides students’ the opportunity to cultivate their gifts and talents.
Qualities of families who are successful in this model of education:
- Profess faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior
- Desire to be the primary influence in their children’s lives
- Learn along-side their elementary students
- Foster responsibility and independence in their middle and high school students
- Engage in the school community recognizing the role of parents is primary but not solitary
- Support their children’s learning every day but especially at-home learning days.
The role of parents evolves throughout their child’s development from serving as a co-teacher in the elementary years to a guide for independent study in the high school years.
