To reflect God’s unchanging LIGHT in an ever changing world.





Hope Christian Academy, in partnership with the community, purposes to academically equip and spiritually prepare students to become Christian Leaders willing to serve their community, church, country, and the Kingdom of God for His glory.




Hope Christian Academy’s philosophy of education is fixed solidly on the inspired, infallible, inerrant, eternal Word of God. The goal of Hope Christian Academy is to develop attitudes and behaviors consistent with Biblical principles. Hope Christian Academy uses the King James Bible and considers it the perfect textbook, applicable to all life matters. Students pray and engage in Bible study and memorization on a daily basis. We look to God’s Word, the basis of all Truth, for instruction and wisdom. The entire Hope Christian Academy staff is committed to Jesus Christ. Our ambition is to base everything we do on the transforming power of the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Teachers seek to integrate God’s Word into every subject taught. Hope Christian Academy believes that a proper relationship between family, church, and school is essential in educating the “whole child”. Education is primarily the responsibility of the parents.  Hope Christian Academy exists to assist the home and church in the fulfillment of the Biblical mandate, to “train up a child…Proverbs 22:6.” Our ambition is to impart knowledge that will impact students intellectually, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
