HopeTree Academy’s education program is individualized and accelerated.
The average student (including students with disabilities) enters the school one and a half to two grade levels behind their chronological peer group. In two and a half to three calendar years, a rising ninth grade student can graduate with one of six Virginia Department of Education diplomas, or a HopeTree Academy “Standard” or “Life/Career” General Educational Development (GED) diploma due to the school’s year-round (three-semester) program and customized remedial opportunities.
HopeTree Academy high school students typically earn eight and a half to nine credits per calendar year.
Each HopeTree Academy student also benefits from in-classroom behavior support specialists, licensed social workers, on-campus licensed professional counselors, psychiatric services, and substance abuse counseling if needed.
