The School of Hope English Academy is one branch of our non-profit Story International. Story International seeks to empower the most vulnerable of Guatemala through the love and knowledge of Jesus Christ. We aspire to help break cycles of poverty and abuse and do so through a number of different programs. Our programs include: family strengthening services, short-term residential care, foster care and English classes at the School of Hope.
Founded in 2012, the School of Hope is our longest-standing program. For 7 years, we ran a completely bilingual elementary school committed to providing a Christian bilingual education. As of March 2020, we now operate as an after school English Academy and Extracurricular program that caters to children and adults of all ages from the Huehuetenango community. We practice a complete immersion method, meaning our students are asked to speak only in English when they are in their English classes. By using this method of teaching, we break down the fear of speaking a second language and allow our students to gain conversational skills rapidly.
At the School of Hope, we strive to bring holistic care and education to our students. We are building up a future generation to be passionate and transformative voices in their churches and community. For many Guatemalans, English can be a valuable skill that makes them noteworthy candidates for jobs and other opportunities.
