HOPE is a blended learning model where K-12 students receive instruction online and through face-to-face classroom instruction. Students attend a community-based Learning Center five days a week for the full school day. Curriculum is assigned and supervised under the direction of a teacher and mentor. There are low student-educator ratios, meaning students get a high level of personal attention in the classroom.
There are nearly 30 HOPE Learning Centers across Colorado in communities, including Metro Denver, Pueblo, Greeley and Leadville. Learning Centers provide an atmosphere of enthusiasm and confidence to promote student learning. On any given school day, students move from online lessons on computers to complimentary offline assignments at desks to fresh air during gym class and recess. HOPE Learning Centers also engage extended families, neighborhood volunteers and community leaders to share wisdom, experience and resources with HOPE students.
