HOPE Academy’s high school program is designed to help the next generation of students identify and cultivate their God-given gifts so they can be launched into the world as mature, equipped Christ followers, engaging the world on its terms and transforming it through the Holy Spirit.
Our program develops student’s critical thinking and problem solving skills through integrated, multidisciplinary studies that utilize inquiry and project based learning. High school courses are taught by subject area experts that engage students in collaborative learning experiences and develop important communication, time management and organizational skills in preparation for the high school years.
At HOPE Academy, students learn through inquiry and hands-on exploration. Students experience more ownership in their learning.
Project-Based Learning is an important aspect of our high school program. Through project-based learning, students collaborate with local and global organizations, field experts, and people with diverse experiences and cultural backgrounds. Leveraging the passions and interests of our students along with the needs of the community are important to developing a generation of students who will use their God-given gifts to bring about influence and positive change.
The University-Model® schedule allows students to engage more personally and meaningfully in rich academic studies and unique personal interests. Students are able to participate in extracurricular activities, community athletic programs, employment, internships, and local ministry. These opportunities allow University-Model® students to not only identify their gifts but cultivate them, along with developing the important attributes of time management, organization and professionalism.
Students move through high school, developing a greater sense of responsibility and independence. The role of parents transitions from a guide for dependent study to a guide for independent study as students develop academic independence.
HOPE Academy graduates are college prepared, character witnesses for Christ. They have clarity of purpose and vision for an epic life. Author John Eldridge said, “the greatest tragedy is not recognizing the significance of our role.” HOPE students are launched into this world ready, knowing God created them with purpose and it is good. HOPE Academy will graduated its first class in May 2019.
