Mount Hope Christian Academy is a place for youth to grow and learn in a Christian environment. They will have a structured class schedule that will not only touch on Phonics, Numbers, Reading, Math and Science, but also religion. Your child will enjoy learning in an engaging and stimulating environment that will create a solid academic foundation, as well as being in an environment that places an emphasis on teaching Christian values and growing up into a respectful adult. 

Mount Hope Christian Academy is religiously exempt from licensure and is sponsored by Mount Hope Baptist Church. We will offer Pre-K3 and Pre-K4 during the 2021 - 2022 academic school year, which will consist of in-person and a virtual or hybrid learning environment if required.  We also offer Before and After Care for children ages 3-12. With the capacity to enroll up to 45 children onsite, Mount Hope Christian Academy’s facility consists of a playground, three classrooms, and a technology center. The church has a large multi-purpose room which is used for Before and After Care, Chapel, physical education, and other school activities.  The Academy is conveniently located within a 1/2 mile of the Gordon Road Commuter Lot.




At Mount Hope Christian Academy, we envision our learners as leaders and innovators of tomorrow.  As such, our goal is to ensure that our learners have an early, strong foundation, both academically and in the Word.   


Serving as our main curriculum, the Abeka curriculum “combines solid academics with biblical principles so that children are best prepared for learning and life”. 


The Abeka curriculum is used in grades PreK-3, PreK-4, and PreK-5.  Students receive instruction in the following areas as part of the Abeka curriculum.

●      Biblical principles

●      Literacy - Language Arts

●      Numeracy - Math Skills

●      Motor Skills Development

●      Creativity Development


In addition to the Abeka program, teachers also utilize resources from Virginia’s Foundation Blocks for Early Literacy (Pre-K4) and the Virginia Standards of Learning (Kindergarten - SOLs).


Along with Abeka assessments, MHCA also uses information from PALS, Virginia’s Phonological Awareness Literacy Screener, in PreK-4 and PreK-5.   PALS is the state-provided screening tool for Virginia’s Early Intervention Reading Initiative (EIRI). The purpose of the EIRI is to reduce the number of children with reading problems through early diagnosis and immediate intervention.
