Hope Academy is an independent college-prep school located off O’Neal Road in Gulfport for grades Pre-K2 through 8. Ours is a top-tier academic program that equips our scholars with the tools they'll need to be successful through college and beyond.
HOW DO WE DO IT?
We Shape Scholars. Hope Academy uses a School-wide Enrichment Program (SEP) to elevate learning for all scholars. The SEP promotes the use of gifted outcomes for ALL scholars, in contrast to the traditional practice of giving gifted students access to learning experiences that are different from those of non-gifted students. School-wide, our learning Reading, Language, and Math courses are based on the ACT Standards of Readiness, giving Hope Academy scholars a better chance of success in first-year credit-bearing college courses.
We Inspire Leadership. As a Leader in Me (LiM) member school, we empower scholars with leadership and life skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. LiM is an evidence-based, comprehensive school improvement model developed in partnership with educators and the Covey Foundation that inspires each student to become a leader using his or her unique gifts and talents.
We Nurture Creativity. The Fine Arts are an essential part of our Hope Academy culture. Each scholar receives instruction in Performing and Visual Arts, giving them an important outlet for self-expression and an opportunity to shine. The Fine Arts are so important to us that we erected a dedicated building - The Studio - where our artists are free to explore and refine their talents.
