The Bible teaches us that all knowledge comes from God, and therefore, all knowledge has unity.

We teach all subjects as part of an integrated whole, with Scripture at the center. Students are equipped to know and love the truth and to utilize that knowledge to glorify God in all things.

The key components of a Hope Academy education:


Prayer and Scripture are woven into the structure of our school. Our teachers strive to teach the hearts and minds of students and to instill a hunger for God and His Word.


We seek to prepare Minneapolis’ next generation of leaders. Our rigorous course of study, grounded in a servant-like posture of love, prepares students for a promising future in the field they pursue.


Our curriculum inspires students with truth, beauty, goodness, and the wonder of God. Students are taught how to think, not what to think, as they grow in knowledge of language, mathematics, science, history, and the arts.

The elements of a classical education:

Our teachers build personal relationships with students, empowering them to grow closer to God.

Remarkable teachers are crucial to a remarkable education. At Hope Academy, we hold our teachers to high standards for these reasons:

Great teachers make a great school.
Students become like their teachers.
Teachers are the “living curriculum” of a school, imparting unspoken, lasting lessons.
