What to Know As a Hope Parent

Thank you for visiting the parent resources page! We believe it’s important for Hope Academy parents to understand what’s happening in their student’s life. Here are some of the basics about Hope:

We serve students in grades nine through 12. School begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 3:20 p.m. Students are expected to arrive on time and in their uniform (khakis and a Hope Academy polo). While tuition is free at Hope, we do charge a textbook/resource fee. Like all public schools, Hope Academy offers free and reduced lunch for students who are eligible. Please notify the Hope Academy staff if your student needs transportation. We offer three pick-up and drop-off locations throughout the city upon request and a northside bus that runs between Westfield and Noblesville. Hope is also on the #19 IndyGo bus route if that is more convenient (see the IndyGo bus schedule for more details).
