Hope Chapel Christian Homeschoolers Network

To Support and Encourage

The Hope Chapel Christian Homeschoolers Network exists to support and encourage Hope Chapel member families who choose to educate their children at home, striving for Godly discipleship and academic excellence while imparting a Biblical worldview into every area of their education. Encompassed within the Network are

  • Hope Chapel Academy – Providing the legal foundation, services, and academic oversight of a private Christian school, serving grades K-12&. Licensed through the state of California since 1987
  • Homeschool EXTRAs (Extracurricular Tools, Resources, and Activities) – Supplementing academic studies with fellowship and extracurricular activities, serving ages 3-18 
  • Homeschool HELP (Hope’s Extension Learning Program) – Administering academic classes for Christian homeschooled students in junior high and high school to augment their home-based education, serving grades 7-12

What We Believe

A Custom Approach

Academy believes children are an inheritance from God (Psalm 123:7). As faithful stewards of this gift, parents need to assume the responsibility of every area of their children’s training and education (Genesis 18:19, Deuteronomy 4:9, 6:6-9, Proverbs 1:8, Ephesians 6:4). Therefore, each family is encouraged to utilize a variety of independent study options and classes to custom-fit each student’s education to his or her own unique needs and abilities.

Alumni who Serve

Home education, especially Christian-based homeschooling, is proving to be a particularly effective method of allowing parents to pass along their faith, values, and worldview to their children along with teaching them the academic skills necessary to succeed in the adult world.

Ninety-nine percent (99%) of our graduates have continued their formal education beyond high school. Accepted at a wide variety of institutions of higher education, Academy graduates have attended the California Institute of Technology (Cal Tech), University of Southern California (USC), University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), California State Polytechnic University at San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly SLO), Hillsdale College, Pepperdine University, Biola University, the California State Universities, and many others. Hope Chapel Academy has had 2 students honored as National Merit Finalists and 5 as Commended Scholars. Over 1/2 of our high school juniors and seniors take advantage of dual enrollment opportunities at local community colleges.

Over its 26 years of existence, Hope Chapel Academy and the Hope Chapel Christian Homeschoolers Network have produced alumni who serve in visible positions of leadership within the Hope Chapel congregation today: leading MiniChurches and Growth Groups, serving on Worship Teams, teaching Children’s Church, assisting in Youth Ministries, and participating in missions (both short-term trips and as long-term fulltime missionaries). These young people can and should serve as examples and inspiration to parents within the Hope Chapel congregation that children can still be brought up to love and obey the Lord wholeheartedly in spite of the increasingly secular culture in which they are being raised.
