Mission & Vision

The mission of The Hope Institute Learning Academy is to create a learning environment that supports students to achieve optimally, regardless of socioeconomic background, learning style, or disability. The mission is realized by creating a school that lives up to its vision – helping students to be successful.

The vision of The Hope Institute Learning Academy is to create a demonstration school within the Chicago Public School system that serves to change the way that children are educated in Chicago. The vision is nothing short of creating a major change in supporting students to achieve – but adopting a model that supports personalization of the educational experience for all students, that engages students in experiencing their curriculum, that utilizes data to make decisions and relies on evidence-based practices, and that is designed from the core to be agile and responsive to student and staff needs – breaking down unnecessary barriers to educational supports, settings, and services that can help all students be successful in our inclusion model.
