Giving people a chance to have a good education, even if money is tight, is the purpose of Free Public Education at Hope Online Academy of Arts. Mainly working with low income families, single parent families, and non-English speaking students, the non-profit is trying to integrate an emphasis on music into their curriculum.
Right now, the main goal is to get kids grades K-5 to get involved in a music program. When the new school year begins next fall, students can expect a different schedule. The Denver-based school system offers smaller classrooms, individualized learning, a free lunch program, free music/instrument learning, free public charter education and more.
There are also classes set up for adults on their website that specialize in general studies and some specific interests. The Hope Online Academy of Arts operates on four pillars – Attend, Achieve, Affliate, Aspire – helping influence the importance of learning to every age.
According to their website, HOPE bases their education on a specific program with high-quality curricula that meets or exceeds Colorado Content Standards and federal Common Core standards. Also, they have an individualized online curriculum that allows students to learn anywhere, anytime and at their own pace. Licensed teachers monitor the progress of all HOPE students young and old with one-on-one mentor support.
Located at 2553 S. Colorado Blvd, the non-profit education program is hosting an open house all during the the month of June. It can benefit children in more ways than one, especially with learning music and culture. For more information on enrollment you can call 303-325-7426 x3 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
