Hope Ridge School
Bringing Quality Education to Rural Ghana
Hope Ridge School was established (as Church of Christ School) by a visionary Christian, Dr. Douglas Akuamoah Boateng on 16th September, 2003. His intention was to have a private, Christian educational institution aimed at providing quality and character training to learners who will impact our world.
The local church (Abetifi/Nkwatia Church of Christ) was given oversight responsibility of the school.
The school was originally located at Abetifi-Kwahu with the first batch of 69 learners enrolled into Nursery and Kindergarten classes held at the basement of the Abetifi Church of Christ auditorium.
In September, 2005, the school was relocated to Nkwatia-Kwahu, its present premises when Dr. Douglas Boateng bought an already built seven unit classroom block and an additional 10.28 acres of land for future expansion.
The school became a subsidiary of Village of Hope in September, 2008 when its owner transferred management and ownership of the school to Village of Hope.
Hope Ridge School exists to offer holistic Christian-based education and development to every child for better life and service to God and humanity.
Hope Ridge School would be a second-to-none educational provider at the Basic level of education across the African continent by the year 2030.
To educate and train all learners regardless of colour, ethnic background, class, creed or religion to harness their unique potentials.
To provide spiritual growth to pupils and staff to align with God.
To offer excellent services to our clientele within and without Hope Ridge School premises.
To provide excellent environment congenial to promote academic excellence.
The Hope Ridge School fraternity upholds our core values of fairness, diligence and virtue. We endeavour to apply these values in every aspect of school operation. In everything we do, we seek to apply the principle of the Golden Rule “do to others what you want them do for you”, and show diligence in whatever we do to the very end, in order to make our hope sure. In our daily interactions, we think about whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely and admirable.
The motto of Hope Ridge School is “Godliness, Knowledge and Wisdom. The motto is embedded in our mission, vision, objectives and the core values.
We believe every individual has God-given mission on earth.
We believe faith in oneself is of primary importance in academic excellence.
We belief positive mental attitude brings success in every endeavour of mankind.
We believe the greatest accomplishment any man can boast of is to know God and serve Him with every gift one may possess.
Genuine wisdom is usually conspicuous through modesty and silence.
The school is open to donor support from individuals, groups and other foundations interested in providing quality education to children in rural communities.
