Mission Statement

At HOPE, our pillars - Attend, Achieve, Affiliate, Aspire - influence our learning culture. The motivation for all our decisions and everything we do on behalf of our students is represented by these four principles.

The HOPE educational program model brings together:

--High-quality curricula that meets or exceeds Colorado Content Standards and federal Common Core standards
--Individualized online curriculum that allows students to learn anywhere, anytime and at their own pace
--Licensed teachers monitoring the progress of all HOPE students
--One-on-one mentor support

HOPE's Mission and Vision

HOPE's mission is to provide a student-focused K-12 educational program through a blended learning environment for students who are historically underrepresented in the online/blended education system. HOPE's model utilizes a community-driven educational system with a focus on attendance, affiliation, achievement and aspiration, which combine to enable our students acquire the knowledge and skill to become future leaders in the community. This unique model of blended learning via community-directed partnerships is predicated on a social change theory that if communities are involved in creating stakeholder-driven educational systems within local neighborhoods, then families and communities will be empowered to guide their children's educational pathways, thereby increasing student success.

The vision of HOPE is to provide a safe, caring and engaging learning environment that empowers students to grow academically, as well as social-emotionally.

HOPE is a non-profit, free, public charter school of the Douglas County School District.

Organization History

HOPE Online Learning Academy Co-Op is in its 15th school year this year. During this time we've graduated close to 1,500 students. Our unique model of educational programming is designed to provide a blended learning model via a community-directed partnership. The design is predicated on a social change theory with a belief that if communities are involved in creating stakeholder-driven educational systems within local neighborhoods, then families and communities will be empowered to guide their children's educational pathways (Mediratta, et.al., 2008). HOPE creates partnerships with Learning Centers to provide small, quality learning environments that represent community voice. These educational systems directed by the community support families and children to set goals and achieve their learning potential. In addition, the system is structured to build capacity by coaching "educators within and of the community" rather than bringing in culturally-incongruent educators from outside of the community. A major goal is to ensure that we keep our families connected; thereby decreasing the level of mobility. Trend data indicates that the reenrollment rate has been increasing while the mobility rate has been decreasing. HOPE has been a Douglas County School District Charter School since 2008.


"HOPE has helped me be more comfortable with myself. I had anxiety about school and the pressure of a regular school atmosphere. The people at HOPE have helped me change all that."
-Conner, HOPE student
