The Eagle Excellence Fund

“As alumni and now parents of alumni, we can say first hand that the experiences at Hope have provided a solid foundation for every aspect of our lives.  From the academic rigor in the classroom, the focus on providing new and emerging technologies, and the support of an amazing community in a safe and caring learning environment — we have never questioned the investment we’ve made in providing this opportunity to our kids.”

Mike and Stephanie Jensen, Hope Graduates

We have launched an initiative to help Hope be an even stronger faith-focused, student-centered school which inspires excellence in every student. This initiative is called the Eagle Excellence Fund.
