A Unique Educational Model
“…for such a time as this”
The University-Model® combines the best attributes of traditional schooling with the best attributes of homeschooling and integrates them into one model. The result is quality, cost-effective, college-preparatory education that gives parents more time for imparting their own faith and values to their children. In partnership with one another, parents and the school work together toward a mutual goal: to produce wholesome, competent, and virtuous followers of Christ who will change the world in their generation.

UM Parent Testimonials
The University-Model® is unlike any other – here’s what parents say:
This school has propelled our daughter’s ability to think and learn independently. The classical model, university-model ® is such a blessing to our entire family. We love how the Biblical worldview is emphasized in every aspect. In addition, we have gained new, lifelong friendships with classmates and their families. This place is an incredible gem!
My son used to lack time-management skills and self-confidence. Now, he loves learning and is completely self-sufficient and takes great pride in his work. HOPE is such an encouraging environment and the classes are small and very close-knit. The teachers really get to know the children. We feel so blessed to be a part of HOPE Academy and are grateful for an alternative to public school.
