LEARNING CENTER SUMMER SCHOOL:
Summer school will be offered through the Learning Center. We will be available Monday-Thursday from 9am-1pm starting June 18th. The purpose of summer school is to allow students to complete course work, recover credit for incompletes or an F, to raise their semester grade in math to allow them to advance (Students below a ‘C’ in a math course cannot go on to the next level), and to enter the new school year with improved skills and/or understanding of course material so they are prepared to focus on the future progress, not concerned with past shortcomings. It will be offered to students of all grades at a minimal cost. Please call or email Patti Hillier, Learning Center Director/Student Advocate, to discuss details.
SUMMERTIME HOST FAMILY OPPORTUNITY:
BRING the mission field to your home for 19 days this summer. Between 31 and 50 Chinese students will arrive here July 18 and 19 to enhance their English reading, writing, and speaking skills at New Hope Christian. They will be at school 3 days a week and go on some exciting local planned adventures.
Each family receives a stipend to assist with expenses.

WHAT’S NEW AT NEW HOPE:
Dear Family and Friends of New Hope,
What’s New at New Hope? The school board voted to approve new discounts that will honor alumni who attended and/or graduated from New Hope. They are…
- 15% discount for the children of New Hope graduates.
- 15% discount for the children of New Hope alumni who attended a minimum of two full years but did not graduate from New Hope.
I praise God for the board’s heart in wanting to honor our New Hope alumni in this manner.
Ernie Stone, Administrator
