Hope Christian School (Hope) is a church school founded on Jesus Christ with a vision of aiding Christian parents in educating their children while equipping this generation with Biblical understanding and wisdom, academic excellence, self-discipline, and physical education.
Hope is both an administrative overseer (conventional school) and an enabler (home education). The purpose of Hope is to minister to the needs of parents who wish to take up their God given responsibility to educate their children primarily or exclusively within the home environment.
We are a ministry designed to serve the needs of the home. In this way, Hope offers families the accountability and structure of a private school, while insuring parents the influence of a home education format.
The school adheres to the conviction that God has ordained that parents are primarily responsible for the education of their children. Home education is not a utopia, nor is it for everyone. But it is for those who have determined to invest their lives in the education of their children that Hope exists.
A child’s education and the direction of his mental, emotional, social, spiritual, and physical growth is properly the responsibility of his parents. The school provides assistance and support to Christian parents who subscribe to this belief. The two-fold goal of education is first to create within the student the desire to learn and, secondly to give the child the ability to relate well to the world around him. Because education is more than the mere gaining of academic knowledge, the school is committed to encouraging an environment in which families can more effectively cultivate the qualities of character, creativity, leadership, responsibility and excellence in every facet of life.
This is where HOPE Christian School gets its name — Homes Of Personalized Education.
The programs of Hope are geared directly to the needs of parents and children who have chosen home education as an educational alternative. Hope assists parents by offering them a system of encouragement and support, a framework of structure and direction, a point of academic reference, a means of accountability, and a resource of information and training. Hope offers children access to group activities and learning experiences which enhance their academic, social, physical, and emotional development. The program includes but is not limited to group classes, standardized achievement tests, team sports, play days, and field trips. In addition to activities for the students, Hope offers parent/teachers local family support groups, workshops, seminars and social functions.
