Dr. Lawrence Courtright’s Story

“I have had the privilege of being a part of church and school work for over thirty years. My oldest two children were home schooled through graduation.  My next two graduated from a private Christian school where my wife taught for ten years.  I also was the founding superintendent of HOPE Academy, a private Christian school in Indiana.

I offer my background to let readers know that we have been on every side of private education and have a depth of experience.  That being said, we had to make a tough choice for our youngest, who is a traveling athlete.  Upon the recommendation of some friends, we pulled our daughter out of school and enrolled her at HPA for her junior year.  What happened next was not only amazing, but a blessing.  Her grades improved, her attitude improved, her work ethic improved and her skill as a volleyball player improved.   We feel this is all because of the learning environment provided at HPA and the true love and care shown by the director, Leah Salyer.  

We recommend the school to anyone wondering about homeschooling.  Make an appointment, meet Ms Leah and have your child sit in on a few classes.  I am sure you will be pleased and feel free to contact me if you have any other questions or concerns.”
