● Residents attend school
five days per week throughout their stay at House of Hope. This allows them to continue working towards meeting graduation requirements.
Because of the structure and year round/individualized component, those who
have fallen behind in school are able to make up missed courses.
● We have a full-time teacher
on Staff, and use the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) curriculum. This curriculum is Biblically based and individually assigned.
● Each student is assigned
PACE’s in the areas of Math, English, Science, Social Studies, and
Literature. These assignments are determined with transcripts from
their previous school and the Diagnostic Test results. A PACE is
equivalent to a chapter in a textbook. The PACE includes reading material,
activities, reviews, self-tests and unit tests. To earn a credit in a course, the student must complete twelve PACE packets in a subject with at least an
80% accuracy rate.
● Physical Education is also a requirement, with individual and group recreational activities.
● A Life Skills credit is
earned through the daily living skills taught through meal prep,
household chores, laundry, and simple maintenance.
● The atmosphere in the
classroom varies from focused and intense, to light-hearted and fun.
● Each day is an adventure,
filled with the expected and unexpected for all involved.
