A Homeschool Friendly Private Micro-School Serving Grades K-6


At Hope Grove School, our mission is to provide a safe, inclusive, and supportive learning environment that nurtures the intellectual, social, emotional, and ethical growth of our diverse community of K-5 learners. We believe in empowering our students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to become global citizens who can thrive in an ever-changing world.
We recognize that each student brings a unique set of experiences, strengths, challenges, and perspectives to our school community, and we strive to celebrate and value this diversity in all its forms. We believe that diversity enriches our learning and enables us to better understand ourselves and others, fostering empathy, respect, and appreciation for different cultures, backgrounds, and identities.
We are committed to promoting social and emotional learning as an integral part of our curriculum, recognizing that these skills are essential for our students’ academic and personal success. We provide opportunities for our students to develop self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making, empowering them to navigate complex social situations, manage their emotions, and build positive relationships with others.
We also aim to cultivate global learners who are knowledgeable, curious, and compassionate about the world around them. We provide opportunities for our students to learn about different cultures, languages, and perspectives, enabling them to develop a sense of interconnectedness and empathy for people from different backgrounds. We encourage our students to engage in service learning and community projects that promote social justice, environmental sustainability, and global awareness.
At Hope Grove School, we are dedicated to providing our students with a rigorous, engaging, and joyful learning experience that prepares them for a lifetime of learning and meaningful participation in society.

It also allows full-time families to take more breaks throughout the year, as needed.
