Hope Christian School

Contact Information:

General description:

In 1989, Wayne & Connie Atchison saw a need in the home education community. They wanted a place that their children could excel, not only academically, but socially – in a safe and Christian environment. So with much prayer & discussion, Hope was founded. After more than 30 years of service, that vision has not changed. They want the same opportunities for your children (and now, their grandchildren and great grandchild) that they wanted for theirs.

Mission Statement:

HOPE Christian School (HCS) is a church school ministry founded on Jesus Christ with a vision of aiding Christian parents in educating their children while equipping this generation with Biblical understanding and wisdom, academic excellence, self-discipline, and physical education.
