Hope Learning Academy Chicago (HLAC) opened its doors to students on September 7, 2009, serving grades K-3.
Hope Learning Academy Chicago was the result of more than three years of discussion and planning between Chicago Public Schools and The Hope Institute for Children and Families.
The goal is to create a new type of school.
A school where children with special needs are responsibly included in the general education classroom.
A place in where all learners are accepted and valued.
