Welcome to New Hope Academy

An extension ministry to homeschooling with a biblical principal.

​New Hope Academy is a non-profit ministry of Stiversville New Hope Fellowship church, located in Portland, Ohio. We are enrolling grades Pre-school – 12th grade. God has been speaking to the leaders of church to extend the stakes of our tents for quite some time. We truly believe that the private school ministry is so important to offer parents who desire to have a smaller class atmosphere for their children to thrive in. Although, NHA is not for everyone, we are offering a safe place, with high academics, focusing on combining all aspects of the school with biblical principles. NHA is for any family looking for support educating their child. We are looking forward to scheduling an enrollment appointment with you and your child.
