Curriculum and Spiritual Development

  • Weekly - Chapel once a week
  • Fall - Spiritual retreats
  • Spring - Spiritual Emphasis Week


We never take for granted that we can worship God freely anytime, anywhere at HOPE.  
  • Studying the Word of God. Both Teacher-led and Student-led Bible studies happen throughout the year at lunchtime, before and after school on both the Middle and High School campuses.

  • Outreach. Meager Rations is a student-led missions group that focuses on outreach activities.  There is also the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Ecuador in the summertime.

Three Assistant Chaplains - (HCHS teachers) - one who was a Navy chaplain, one with Biblical counseling experience, and another lay counselor.

Student Chaplains and assistants from from the Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior classes on Student Council (8 total).  These student servants meet weekly with the School Chaplain to pray for the school, staff, and families, and to discuss relevant topics for chapel. They also serve as advisors to our staff chaplains in selecting relevant special chapel topics such as Depression and Anxiety, Suicide, and more which have been magnified by COVID.

High School is a time when our students' faith becomes their own.
