Aren’t there other GED Programs out there?
Yes, there are a number of GED programs in the greater Savannah area but there are not enough. Our focus is on the Thomas Square Area (we accept students from other areas) because the need is greatest there.
By the Numbers:
16 % less than HS Education (25+) in Chatham County
42.7% less than HS Education (25+) in Thomas Square
How is Hope Academy different?
We focus on a personalized path which is guided by the student’s ultimate goals. We help remove barriers by keeping class sizes small, providing individual help with homework coaches as well as career and academic mentoring beyond the GED as they pursue their ultimate goals.
The leaders in other GED programs all agree: “you can’t have too many GED programs because they need to be easily accessible and small because of the need for individual attention.” http://whitefieldfoundation.org/about-us/faqs/
It is because of our approach we are only able to accept students if we have enough volunteer teachers and coaches to maintain our individualized method.
How is the program paid for?
Hope Academy is a non-profit incorporation that is paid for by donations. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
