Hope Learning Academy was created as an alternative school dedicated to students who have mild learning disabilities or for those that might struggle in a traditional school setting. The academy focuses on teaching students to think critically, solve problems and to be self-reliant, all while using a curriculum that incorporates social growth, sensory integration and art enrichment. The school’s proximity to the Toledo Museum of Art prompted a partnership between the two organizations to cultivate students’ interest in the arts. Hope Learning Academy is committed to small class sizes, allowing increased one-on-one attention from highly qualified teachers.
