What is the House of Hope Maryland Day School Program?
We are a year-round day school program for teen girls. Students attend school five days a week and utilize the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) curriculum for core class requirements. In addition, they will progress through a phase system of restoration, participate in individual, group and family counseling, learn life skills and participate in spiritual growth initiatives to cultivate a relationship with Jesus Christ.
We are not emergency placement, a quick fix, or punishment. We are a safe, voluntary, long-term program designed to teach teens who they are in Christ, to promote lasting healing they will lean on for years to come.
Do I have to be a Christian to enroll in House of Hope Maryland Day School?
Students do not need to be Christian to enroll in our program and are not turned away for religious preference. The Christian perspective will be shared and families agree to this upon admission to the day school. The program works with the understanding that a structure based on Christian principles is needed to create a safe, healing environment.
Are credits earned at House of Hope Maryland Day School, transferable to other schools? Maryland law states that a local public school system may determine whether credits earned at a church exempt high school will be accepted to the public high school which the student transfers.

With this in mind, it is important for parents to pursue this question with administrators of the school they anticipate their student may attend after HOHMD.
