HOPE Academy: An Inner-City Program for Gifted Children

What Does "Gifted" Mean?

How Can Hope Help?

Our Programs Include:

o   Knowing your child is different may seem scary. In fact, gifted children who are not given chances to develop their abilities may show negative behaviors, such as constant daydreaming, challenging authority and being disruptive. But giftedness also means that your child has exceptional potential and, if given the proper education, can achieve great things.

HOPE Academy for Gifted Children has studied the development of gifted children for decades. We use special tools to help identify gifted children as young as three years old. We know that the earlier gifted kids are identified, the sooner we can help them reach their potential

The HOPE Academy program provides a challenging, rewarding and nurturing environment for gifted kids, where they learn at their own pace.
