Hope Hall is a not-for-profit school in the Rochester area providing an environment of learning and a creative atmosphere for students to become lifelong learners. As part of this process, the school is engaged with local businesses for the opportunity of job shadowing students' in the nineth and tenth grades. Once the student is in their final year of the school, Hope Hall marries up a student with a company for work experience.

The school's learning approach includes multi-sensory instruction and mastery of a course before moving to the next course. Hope Hall is seeing sucess, it is now graduating its first class, since expanding to the 12th grade four years ago, and half have been accepted to college.

To off-set the costs of running the not-for-profit school, Hope Hall is running a $1.5 million match campaign - and they are nearly at their goal with $1.294 million in donations pledged. If you are interested in Hope Hall, or how you may donate to this worth cause, click here.
