New Hope Academy is a PreK3-12 private school where parents and faculty work in consortium with the administration. Together we came to the overall consensus that online, rather than face-to-face in-school learning was preferable at this time. A few families, with children in the early Elementary and the Preschool, did express some interest in an In-person learning environment. We are still accepting applications for the fall, and if there is sufficient interest, NHA will add in-person classes to our offerings. NHA will evaluate our programs and consider making any needed adjustments as the school year progresses.

Please inform the admissions office if you would prefer an in-person learning options for your child. Classes need a minimum number of registered students to open.
