Serving one of the most culturally diverse communities in the city, Hope Academy teachers employ a classical model of instruction that inspires students to pursue truth, practice goodness, and create beauty.
Successful candidates will be driven to integrate their teaching with a biblically informed perspective and build developmental relationships with students that prepare them to become thoughtful, compassionate leaders who desire to serve the common good.

Our mission is to establish and operate high performing public schools in the Twin Cities that confront educational inequity by delivering academic excellence and cultivating leadership skills to ensure all students succeed in college and life.
KIPP schools are tuition-free, public charter schools open to all students.

They are independently operated schools that run with more flexibility than traditional public schools in exchange for increased accountability.
