One usually associates a private Christian education with the privileged, with the middle or upper classes. That’s what makes Hope Academy in North Carolina so special; they are a private, faith-based middle school specifically focused on helping students who are in poverty. Parents do pay tuition, but the rate is based on their income.
When I hear about initiatives such as Hope Academy, I think, “What a way to put feet to your faith.” I wish we could refer several dozen Aim Right kids to a similar school because they could greatly benefit from this type of educational setting. Watch the video linked to below and be inspired by how this school is impacting kids’ lives.
“You hear about poverty all the time, but when it has a face and a name, it changes you.”
