More Time for All
By Staff Writer

St. HOPE is founded on five pillars. Pillar number three is More Time. Most know this translates into longer school days for our students, which is one part of the concept of more time, and one that may cause kids to cringe initially. But it makes sense. If you are behind it will take longer to catch up. If you are ahead then more time will help you get further ahead. However, the pillars are not just for our students, they apply to the adults as well. 

Teachers and staff at St. HOPE embody the five pillars and model them for students.

A Stronger Oak Park
By Staff Writer

St. HOPE’s focus on Oak Park’s children goes beyond just those that attend the schools we operate. While well over 1,500 students attend Triumph, PS7, Oak Park Prep and Sac High combined, there are thousands of other children in the neighborhood. Over the past month, St. HOPE has had the privilege of opening the school’s doors to children from Oak Park and the surrounding communities on several occasions. We are honored to have this privilege to support as many students and families as possible.
