Interested in learning more about us?

Our HOPE Christian Academy is a nonprofit, non denominational, family run school located in Ringoes, NJ.
Since HOPE opened its doors in 2008, we have treated every student like they were a part of our Christian family.  Our goal at HOPE is to integrate a love of learning into all aspects of life, emotionally, intellectually, physically, and spiritually.  At HOPE, we integrate academic and fine arts subjects with practical application, such as planting and caring for a vegetable garden. 
Through prayer and actions, we try to instill in HOPE's students God's love for all of mankind. We support Joan's Monarch Wishes, Operation Christmas Child, Flemington Food Pantry, Friendship Center for New Beginnings, Toys for Tots, and our servicemen and women through cards and donations. For as Booker T. Washington said in his book, Up From Slavery,  "The happiest people are those who do the most for others; the most miserable are those that do the least."
HOPE strives to provide its students with a "HOPE and a Future." (Jeremiah 29:11)

A Note from the Principal

     At HOPE, we rely on God’s Word to guide us in all our ways; therefore, our approach to educating our students follows the path laid forth in Colossians 3:15-17 and 23. First, we ask God for His peace. A peaceful and thankful heart encourages us individually and as a body. Then, we acknowledge that work is a gift from God to us; the work that we do is to honor God. We do our best work with a thankful heart as an offering to God. Colossians 3:15-17, 23 says,15 “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters…” A student at HOPE will never be given grades- he will earn them.  
    Though each child is an individual to be appreciated and encouraged for who he is, he is also a member of a team. “John Donne wrote, 

“No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thy friend's
Or of thine own were:
Any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,”

Every student, faculty or staff member is appreciated for his gifts and talents. It also follows that each person is expected to treat others with the same kindness and consideration for which they wish to be treated.

  As principal, I desire to support all members of HOPE’s family in exhibiting the characteristics that will demonstrate God’s presence within each one of us. Therefore, I will help each child to learn the compensating skills specific for his needs. I will be firm, and I will correct, when necessary. But, loving each child the way God loves me is the most important thing I can do.

About the Staff
WE BELIEVE... the Bible to be the inspired, the infallible, the authoritative inerrant Word of God [II Timothy 3:15, II Peter 1:21].

WE BELIEVE... there is one God, eternally existent in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit [Genesis 1:1. Matthew 28:19, John 10:30].

WE BELIEVE... that man was created in the image and likeness of God [Genesis 1:27, John 1:1-4, Hebrews 11:3].

WE BELIEVE... in the deity of Christ [John 10:33], His virgin birth [Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35], His sinless life [Hebrews 4:15, Hebrews 7:26], His miracles [John 2:11], His vicarious and atoning death [I Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9], His resurrection [John 11:25, I Corinthians 15:4], His ascension to the right hand of the Father [Mark 16:19], His personal return in power and glory [Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11].

WE BELIEVE... in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the sinfulness of human nature; and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God's grace and through faith alone we are saved [John 5:24-25, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5].

WE BELIEVE... in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved to the eternal life with God; the lost to the eternal life without God [John 5:28-29].

WE BELIEVE... in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ [Romans 8:9, I Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 3:26-28].

Statement of Faith
HOPE Handbook 
"Lions of Judah"

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” (Proverbs 22:6) Throughout any given day, this verse may be at the back of my mind. As a teacher, it represents a charge, a challenge, and a privilege. Children are God’s gifts to us, and He calls us to raise them, teach them, and lead them in His ways. What an awesome responsibility! What a great joy!
     How children are trained determines what kind of adults that they will become. It is my privilege to help children to be the best that they were created to be. Sometimes, that training comes with laughter and joy; other times that training comes with tears and discipline. Many times, that training comes with tenacity and determination. All times, that training comes with God’s love, faithfulness, grace, mercy, and wisdom through my own love, kindness, and honesty for each and every single student.
     Each day, my students learn from me, and I learn from them. My classroom often is filled with laughter, fun, and smiles, but, just as often, my classroom is filled with tears, compassion, and tenacity. Every day is a gift, and it is up to each of us to determine how we will use that gift. In the classroom, it is my job to ensure that my students become the best that they can be by providing them with the tools that they need to be brilliant lights of Christ. However, others also have a job. My students must try their best in every word, deed, thought, and attitude. Training is often difficult, sometimes painful, but the reward is worth every second of blood, sweat, and tears. Likewise, training children presents its own challenges, but the eternal reward is far greater than anything one can imagine.
