Parent Involvement

The philosophy of New Hope Academy is rooted in the belief that parents are a vital, irreplaceable ingredient in the success of their children.

When a student’s family is involved in his or her educational experience at this level, the family instills by example the long-standing value and importance of a quality education. Together with our parents, we help our students grow into men and women of faith, integrity, and character.

Fulfilling Potential 

Reshaping our culture begins with empowering our children to reach the potential God intended for them. Each student’s family is critical to that mission and integral to the student’s personal and academic success. For this reason, New Hope Academy requires a high level of involvement from its parents in the form of volunteer hours and participation in Saturday School held once each semester.

Parent Commitment  

Parents are asked to volunteer a minimum of two hours per month and are encouraged to think creatively as they consider ways to contribute. Parents are also encouraged to offer their unique skills, abilities, and resources as they seek to meet the volunteer requirement.

As an example, a parent with carpentry skills might build a special reading space in his or her child’s classroom. Or a musical parent might play the piano and lead worship during all-school devotions one week.

Saturday School

One of the unique aspects of New Hope Academy is Saturday School. Occurring once per semester, Saturday School offers parents the opportunity to experience school with their child. Parents join students from 8-11 am on the designated Saturday, going about the student's normal routine in the classroom. Special activities are often planned and opportunities provided so that students can share with their parents all that they have been learning. At Saturday School, parents develop a deeper appreciation for the value of their child's education and academic development, while building relationships with their child's teacher and with other parents. Saturday School days are two of the most fun and rewarding days of the entire school year.
