COVID-19 SHUT DOWN THE BUILDING, NOT THE LEARNING.
When government and health officials suggested that schools be closed beginning Monday March 16, we asked the same question as every other school on the Mississippi Gulf Coast...what do we do now?
Our educators immediately agreed on one thing: Our scholars will continue their studies, even if we have to reinvent the way Hope Academy provides their education. Our teachers met that Monday morning to evaluate the options. By that afternoon, they had established a framework for online learning and had begun organizing lessons for our scholars.
On Tuesday March 17, Hope Academy Online (HAO) was born, and it's been a phenomenal success. Using our existing technology resources, curriculum materials and a whole lot of creativity, our educators, students and parents have embraced this new format for learning. As a result, our students will head into the summer months having completed all of their spring semester course requirements to advance to the next grade level.
You know the drill...look for info via text and Facebook. Updates also will be posted here.
WE'LL KEEP YOU IN THE LOOP, PARENTS!
