Secondary School Program
After extensive resaerch, Hope Academy decided to inco-orperate the Secondary school curriculum (Ordinary Level of Education) within the the Vocational school program. Parents in the community have expressed the need for a good secondary school. Currently, students have to up to four kilometers to attend high school. Since many students come from poor families and some of them have dropped out of school have the need to attain an "O" level certificate to be able excell in the Vocational training program.
Less than 20 percent of students who complete "O" levels continue to the "A" level program. Ugandans consider secondary education a "rich man's harvest." Parents have to pay large fees and buy school uniforms. These fees are prohibitive for many poor rural families. Over half of the students who finish "O" levels and enter the job market do not find meaningful employment. Hope Academy would therefore provide an alternative path so these students unable to continue to "A" level can undertake vocational training at acquire practical skills in various trades.
Goals and Objectives
