Quality Boarding School Education
We believe that putting academics back on track makes a significant difference in the lives of teens who are overcoming life-controlling issues. While enrolled in New Hope Boys Home, students work on their secondary education in our state licensed GRO (General Residential Operation) offering child care services. Boys work under the instruction of a certified teacher, with tutors available for additional assistance.
A Second Chance at Education
Boys come to us with a wide variety of academic records, often with a history of failing grades and skipped classes. For many of our students, enrollment with New Hope Boys Home means a second chance at graduating high school, a possibility which had nearly been destroyed by their former lifestyle. Our self-paced curriculum, along with one-on-one instruction from our teaching staff, allows boys to gain mastery of subjects and earn missed credits toward a high school diploma.
New Hope Boys Home staff provides certified teachers, a quality computer-based curriculum, record keeping and a wide variety of courses.
New Hope Boys Home Academy Offers
State Licensed Education
Because we operate year-round, students have the unique opportunity to get back on track, or in many cases even get ahead in their classes. Students can fully capitalize and take advantage of the time they have for school, and we see many students complete middle or high school while here.
We are uniquely qualified and certified to teach subject-specific courses to our students.
New Hope courses include text-based lessons, assignments, quizzes, and tests that engage students while they learn. Optional external web links, interactive learning games, audio and video clips, and off-computer assignments help students develop the skills necessary for academic success in a media-rich environment.
Students get a consolidated view of daily assignments, curriculum overviews, due dates, subject reviews, and grades with this organizational feature geared to keep them on track.
Prescriptive Credit Recovery
Diagnostic testing in language arts and math allows teachers to identify content areas in which students need review, so students who previously failed a course can recover the credits they need to graduate without repeating the entire course.
More than 50,000 multimedia elements including audio and video files, challenging games, interactive exercises, a historical timeline, and integrated video clips reinforce concepts and offer in-depth explanation of key points.
Text to Speech
This user-friendly application allows students to hear selected passages or entire lessons to promote greater understanding by simply highlighting the text within the lesson.
Strong, Reliable Safeguards
Student computers are programmed to restrict all internet access with the exception of Academy related websites. In order to limit distractions and provide an environment conducive to learning students do not have access to email or social networking sites while attending New Hope Boys Home.
