Join our Team and Make a Difference!
Hope Preparatory School seeks teachers with a missional spirit and vision to see all children reach their God-given potential regardless of economic status. We seek college graduates from all academic disciplines, whose hope is in God alone, to join our team as we impact the next generation for Christ through excellent God-centered education. Opportunities for leadership, creativity, and professional advancement abound as our growing, thriving school impacts a world in desperate need of God’s love and truth.

Our History: Hope Preparatory School was established in 2019 as a private, Christian non-profit committed to providing a Christian classical education to underserved students in grades K-8th grade with small class sizes at an affordable price. We will be serving grades K-5 in Fall 2022, with the goal of adding one grade a year up to at least 8th grade.

Our Mission: We are driven by our mission to foster hope in God by closing the achievement gap and preparing our students for college and beyond. We are fueled by our love for God and his care for every one of our students which motivates us to get better every day. Join our team of mission-driven brothers and sisters to work hard, do good, and make a difference.

Our Inspiration: “They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD, for the display of His splendor. They will rebuild the ancient ruins; they will restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations.” Isaiah 61:3-4
