Academics

Academics at Hope Lutheran School 

The teaching of the Christian faith is recognized as the major emphasis of our school’s curriculum.  Christ is integrated into all subjects as our students grow daily in their faith.  They develop specific virtues that equip them to become responsible, effective Christians for life.  Our excellent academics are also used as a foundation for building not only strong, confident scholars, but also contributing members of the community.  Students are encouraged to apply the conceptual information they learn in the classroom to “real-world” problems in both individual and collaborative settings.  Independence, responsibility, and self-discipline are fostered at all levels, as are organizational and study skills.

“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth,…so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.”
Isaiah 55:10-11
