“I have come that they may have life and have it abundantly.”

John 10:10

Hope Preparatory School is inspired by the pioneering work of Hope Academy in Minneapolis, MN and utilizes the resources graciously published by its partner organization, Spreading Hope.

Five Core Values of Hope Preparatory School


We believe God is the greatest treasure in the universe. Therefore, we provide an education to students where God is loved and glorified as central and supreme in life’s total experience. We are altogether dependent upon God for both the power to be good and do good.

The Bible

We believe the Bible is the inspired, only infallible, authoritative Word of God. Therefore, we thoughtfully integrate its teachings into every part of our community life and instruction.

The Kingdom of God

We believe man’s purpose is to love God and enjoy Him forever. Therefore, we seek out teachers who are, above all, devoted to Christ, as they prepare a new generation of servant leaders who will reflect the values of the Kingdom of God to our city and our culture.

The Love of Christ

Christ’s love compels us to love others. We believe all children deserve the same educational opportunities. Therefore, we joyfully share with those in our midst the resources God has entrusted to us. Philippians 2:3,4


We believe God’s purpose is to reconcile all things in heaven and earth together under Christ. Therefore, we will seek to preserve the unity of the spirit and create a school community that reflects the denominational, cultural, racial, and economic harmony which the Lord desires for the body of Christ.
