Hope Charter Leadership Academy is a tuition-free public school that serves students from Kindergarten through Fifth grades. We are located in the historic Oakwood neighborhood and housed in the Barbee School Building that was erected in 1924. The school's progressive, high-quality, student-centered educational program expands educational choices for parents and their children in the public school system, supports a nurturing community of learners, and focuses on enhancing the academic growth, and builds leadership within all students while nurturing social development in every student.
Hope Charter Leadership Academy bases its leadership focus on Stephen Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective Kids. As a Leader In Me School, students will discover and practice a set of leadership and life skills from Stephen Covey's book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Leader In Me schools receive national recognition for their emphasis on developing leadership in young children. Incorporating The Leader In Me practices within our school's environment and curriculum assists our students in becoming prepared to succeed in the 21st Century, with critical skills and characteristics such as: motivation, problem-solving skills, trustworthiness, a strong work ethic, goal setting, effective interpersonal skills, academic achievement, a sense of teamwork, and valuing diversity in a global market.
Welcome to Hope Charter Leadership Academy Greetings,
The faculty and staff of Hope Charter Elementary are looking forward to an energetic, rewarding, and successful year of learning and leadership. Our school is building rich traditions, and developing an outstanding reputation about our emphasis on leadership and our extensive wrap around support from the community.
As we implement our new leadership focus while becoming the first Leader In Me Charter school in Raleigh, NC, we recognize that in order to be successful our children need support in leadership and academics in order to be prepared as 21st century learners. We also know that it is imperative that an effective partnership between teachers and parents is accomplished as it makes a great difference in supporting your child's education. I would encourage each parent/guardian to stay active in your child's education. I certainly realize that many of us lead busy lives, and it is often difficult to volunteer at school. However, taking just a few minutes in the evening to read to your child, talk with your child about school, or simply see that your child is organized for the next school day can have amazing benefits.
Also, we are currently accepting New Student Initial Applications! The Open Enrollment period ends on Friday, April 18, 2014. All families interested in being a part of the Spring lottery database and eligible for admission to Hope Elementary Charter must submit their initial applications by Friday, April 18, 2014.
