Mission: Academy of Hope's mission is to provide high quality education and services that change lives and improve our communities.

Results: Academy of Hope impacts the lives of over 500 adult learners a year. Since 1985, we have helped over 650 (and counting) adult learners obtain their high school credential and 6,000 more improve their basic reading, writing, math and computer skills. We empower our students with a quality education so that they have the tools and skills they need for the road ahead. We foster in our students a common sense understanding that they must always commit to challenging their own status quo and become life-long learners.

Our curriculum is experiential and focuses on life skills, which means that students can immediately begin applying what they’re learning to their own lives—and reap the benefits.
