St. HOPE began in 1989 as an afterschool program in a portable
classroom at Sacramento High School
After 13 years, St. HOPE realized that an after school program
simply wasn’t enough to dramatically improve the academic
outcomes of children, that it would be necessary to establish and
run our own schools.
In 2003, St. HOPE Public Schools was founded as a preK-12
independent charter school district that provides high-quality
education to nearly 2,000 students.
