Program Description
New Hope School Information:

New Hope School is in operation year round. The girls have a summer and winter break as well as Holiday breaks (Thanksgiving, New Years etc). We have field trips, such as mountain hiking, plays and musicals at the Hale Theater, visits to the Kennecott Copper Mine, and many other learning activities. The girls also participate in extra-curricular activities including Speech, Art, Drama, Dance-worship, Sign Language, Sports and P.E.

Purpose:

We believe in and strive for a well-rounded education and teaching the girls not just the “facts” of education but also the importance of learning how to learn (critical thinking). Tooele High School Counselor Julie Busico says of New Hope House, “It is the most comprehensive program of its kind.”

Accreditation and Credits:

New Hope School uses Accelerated Christian Education curriculum, better known as ACE. NHS receives credit through Light House Christian Academy (LCA). The Southwest Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and the Commission on International and Trans-regional Accreditation (CITA) accredit LCA. The ACE program is built upon the following five basic laws of learning:

Students must be at levels where they can perform
Reasonable goals must be set Students must be controlled and motivated
Learning must be measurable
Learning must be rewarded
From its inception in 1970, the Accelerated Christian Education curriculum has held to the following goals:

A solid back-to-basics educational program
A course of study individualized to meet student’s specific needs and learning abilities
A program incorporating goal setting, character building, and wisdom principles
A curriculum using available advanced computer technology to help ensure the finest education possible in today’s high-tech climate
All credits earned at New Hope School are accepted at Tooele High School. (Questions about the acceptance of our credits at a different school would require consultation with that school’s counselors.)
