  •  Welcome to Hope Academy!

    Our mission is to create an equitable learning environment that personalizes the education of all students while taking into account each student's ability and culture.

    We envision a school that addresses the whole child where students are empowered with the skills to become citizens who productively participate in society and impact our world in a meaningful and just way. We will create an environment that offers a variety of learning opportunities that are supported by the adults in the building as well as community partnerships.

    Our school offers comprehensive arts, enrichment, and athletic programs that include: band, choir, orchestra, general music, art, social development, physical education and health, boys and girls basketball, cross country, track, and cheer, and girls volleyball.

    It is our pledge to provide a challenging and rewarding experience for our students. Again, we strongly encourage parents to become involved with our programs at Hope Academy to ensure a strong cooperative effort between the home and school. Visitors and community members are also welcome and should check into the main office upon entering the school.

    Please contact the school whenever you have concerns about your child's education, etc. Office hours are 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. and our phone number is 217-362-3280.

    Mrs. Tasia Burks, Principal

  • DPS will be delivering meals to students during virtual learning. Each registered student will receive one delivery per week, with five breakfasts and five lunches included. Meal deliveries will be made on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8:30 to 3:30 each day. If you haven't registered yet, it's essential you get that done so your student can receive future meal deliveries.

    Meals will only be delivered to the student's registered home address - we cannot change the address for meal delivery. We are working to finalize our delivery routes so that we can give families a courtesy call to let you know which day your student will receive meal delivery. We ask for your patience and cooperation as we take on the task of delivering thousands of meals each week.
