Welcome to Hope Academy
Finally, an AFFORDABLE sober living college program
Are you new in recovery? Or maybe you are the parent of someone who is refocusing his/her life working a program of recovery and sobriety. Going back to college or starting college can be an exciting and rewarding part of one’s recovery. Let’s face it: perhaps you attempted college in the past and did not finish, maybe you initiated the process and then never attended class, or you simply felt you were not worthy of even applying for enrollment. While addiction can be a major catalyst in one’s unsuccessful attempts at school, the reality is that most individuals truly do not know how to be great students.
Our Hope Academy students will learn…
- About financial aid
- How to properly read chapters in a textbook for optimal recall
- How to effectively take notes
- How to study for tests and final examinations
- How to take the actual test
- Time management skills
Welcome to Hope Academy!
We are excited to help you build your foundation of sobriety and to assist you through the wonderful adventure of higher education. Hope Academy is a unique program is designed to transition clients from their addiction infused existence to one of a successful college student. We understand that each of our clients is anxious to get back into the “real world”; however, it is imperative that the client be properly guided to a position of responsible independence while keeping their main focus on recovery. The longer a client remains in a treatment environment, the greater the chance of long term sobriety. We are here to walk our clients through each phase of the college experience and establish his/her independence once again. Becoming a proficient student is a major focus of our program.
What Hope Academy students can expect…
It’s true, stress is part of reality. Clients will undoubtedly encounter stress with classes; but, for the first time, they will deal with these stresses with a sober mind. This will be new to the client. Therefore, Hope Academy clients will be surrounded by recovery, including:

- Attending AA meetings on a daily basis
- Participating in group activities with sober individuals
- Exercising daily in our onsite gym.
Outside of classes and in addition to the interpersonal skills our clients learn through their daily groups and counseling, our staff will teach these life skills that our clients will hone to reduce additional stress, negative feelings and help them focus on their sobriety, continued recovery and their educational goals.
