Hope Academy is the Boarding School arm of our program, which is approved by the O.S.P.I. of the State of Washington Certification for 2019-2020. We are also accredited through the Northwest Accreditation Commission Accreditation Certificate Current- 2023 from AdvancED / Northwest Accreditation Commission and through the Association of Christian Schools International –ACSI Membership Certificate.
Education is an important part of the Flying H Youth Ranch experience. The Flying H will help your son catch up (and even move ahead) in his education.
Our program includes assessments of your son’s current needs and tailors a program suited to his learning abilities. Each young man receives close adult supervision with his studies in small classes. His schooling includes computer lab work, hands-on lab work, and classroom instruction. He will have vocational learning opportunities (such as welding, construction, agricultural, etc.) as well as his general education classes. Parents will receive regular updates on their son’s educational progress. We also provide parents with access grades online. https://www.thinkwave.com

Terra Nova Standardized Testing:
The Flying H educational staff has recently completed the 2010 standardized testing for Flying H Hope Academy students, using the Terra Nova Standardized Test for assessment. For several boys, who have taken the test at the Flying H for two successive springs, very solid, sometimes spectacular, progress can be documented.The expected yearly growth has been present in almost every subject for all of these boys for that year’s period of time. For most of them the progress has been much more significant, with several of these achieving two or three years of progress in several subject areas during this one year period. We have also seen some scores indicating five and eight years of progress during that year in some academic areas!
This spectacular progress can best be explained by the nature of the Hope Academy program. Small class sizes, usually a maximum of 6; easy and continual access to dedicated teachers for assistance; a math program customized to meet each student’s needs and progress; required diligence in students for completing school assignments; an availability and willingness of volunteers to provide tutoring when needed; all of these contribute greatly to the success of our students.
