Our vision is to create a Christ-centered environment of learning and development for special needs children. The First Hope offers a unique approach to teaching students with disabilities both cognitively and spiritually. Classes provide a small student to teacher ratio in order to promote student achievement.
The General Inclusion Program partners with The Classical School to provide an opportunity for students to mainstream with typical peers on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students work on grade level instruction while receiving accommodations and/or modifications individually tailored to meet their needs.
The Inclusion Essential Program provides research-based instruction for students who are more than one grade level behind in core content areas. Students enrolled in this program will join The Classical School students during lunch, art, chapel, recess and physical education. The purpose of this program is to provide a comprehensive balance of academic intervention and inclusive opportunities.
The Transitions + Program gives students an opportunity to focus on developing academic skills in core content areas, as well as improve life skills, social skills, and levels of independence.
The Early Learning Program is designed for our youngest learners ages three and four. Students will learn foundational skills primarily through play along with speech and occupational therapies and ABA principles.
The Home Program serves families remotely and offers the flexibility of learning from home, along with the added support of a special needs program. The Home Program offers supplemental opportunities for both social and academic tailored to specific needs of each student.
