In order to meet the educational needs of each student, Hope Academy is dedicated to using the finest curriculum available. As a private school, we have Christian values integrated throughout each subject area as the topic allows and daily Bible lessons are taught to help establish Christian values.
Hope Academy strives to ensure that all students are able to learn the state standards-based on their own learning style. Each curriculum used will be a guide that follows the State Standards which will keep us, as a school, accountable to teach what the students need and when they need it. However, at Hope Academy, we are able to teach and reteach the concepts in different strategies to effectively meet each student’s learning style. Teachers at Hope Academy are not only required to follow the textbooks provided by the curriculum, they are encouraged to pull from other resources to ensure each student’s needs are being met.
