HOPE’s mission is to provide educational and social advantages to home schooled students by providing opportunities for social interaction and accountability within the framework of Biblical principles. In an effort to accomplish this, we offer affordable, quality academic classes that provide support to parents in their endeavor to home educate their middle through high school-aged children.

We realize the teen years are challenging for home schooled families and many sadly abandon home schooling due to lack of support. Hope provides the support many families need.

We also offer opportunities such as drama productions, a yearbook, social activities, family educational trips, formal dances, and a graduation ceremony each year.
