FOLLOW THESE STEPS TO APPLY FOR ADMISSION TO HOPE ACADEMY
Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis from November – May for the following school year. We anticipate waitlists in certain grades, so we highly encourage submitting an application by January for the best chances of securing a spot.
1. Attend an Open House
Due to the unique nature of our model and educational philosophy, at least one prospective parent is required (but both parents are strongly encouraged) to attend an open house prior to applying for admission.

2. Complete an Application for Admission
Our application deadline for Fall, 2019 admission is Friday, May 17, 2019. Due to the unique nature of our model and the need for parent training, HOPE does not accept mid-year admissions.
Please prayerfully consider if HOPE is a fit for your family prior to applying. A $150 nonrefundable fee per student will be collected at the time of application. Students must be five years old for admission to Kindergarten, or six years old for admission to First Grade by August 31st.

Please note that you will be asked to provide the name and e-mail of 2-3 references as part of the application process. Your references will automatically receive an e-mail referral form when you submit the application.
Gather Additional Documents
- Copy of most recent report card – grades 1 and up
- Copy of most recent standardized test results – grades 1 and up
- Copies of supplemental test results and/or educational plans (i.e. psychological or learning disabilities testing, I.E.P.’s, 504 plans) only if applicable
3. Family Meeting
Once an application has been submitted, all references have responded, and all additional documents received, you will be contacted by HOPE Academy to schedule a one hour family meeting. Both parents, as well as the student, must be present
4. Admissions Decision
An admissions decision will be rendered by HOPE Academy within three weeks of the family meeting. Families will be notified of our decision by mail. Due to a high demand for admission in certain grades, HOPE may place students on a wait list. The order of wait list placement is at the sole discretion of administration.
5. Register to Secure Your Seat
Once admitted, a non-refundable registration fee will be due within ten days of admission to hold a place for your student. Please see the tuition and fee schedule for rates and additional information. If a student is accepted but waitlisted, the registration fee will not be due until a classroom spot is available.
6. Grade Placement Testing
In order to ensure correct grade level and class placement, HOPE may administer a standardized assessment in math and reading to incoming students at any time during the admissions process.
HOPE Academy admits students of any race and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies.
