About Hope Academy

Hope Academy, founded in 1997, is an inclusion based private school, accredited by SCISA.  As part of Project HOPE Foundation's lifespan of services for the autism community, our mission is to provide supportive classes that develop and celebrate each child's academic, behavioral and social successes.  Classes are small with extra staffing.  Our classes are blended grades enabling children to work at their own level, reducing frustration and boredom.  This model allows us to foster knowledge, character development, and social responsibility.  At Hope Academy, our students “love to learn … and learn to live.”

The Hope Academy Way details our teaching philosophy.  We are grateful to Advent United Methodist Church for generously providing a home for our classes at their educational facility at 2258 Woodruff Road, Simpsonville, SC 29681.  

Hope Academy received the Best in the Upstate for Private Schools award from the Greenville News readers.
