We have been in existence since 1988 as a homeschool program based out of St. Jerome’s school in Vermilion under the guidance of Brady Long.
In 1992 we became one of the first and the largest willing non-resident boards in Alberta to accept students from all over Alberta. We had about 500 basic homeschooling students that year. The next year our numbers doubled and the next year they doubled again!
In 1996 the School of Hope was created in response to government cuts in funding for the basic homeschooling students and an opportunity to provide more support for our students and families.
Today, the School of Hope and Vermillion Home Schooling are widely considered leaders in distance and home-based education, serving thousands of students and their families.
