The Founder’s rationale for starting James Hope College is predicated on affordable excellence. James Hope College offers world-class education for a subsidised fee because it is supported by a substantial endowment fund.
Our Founder, notes that, ‘The payback period for a solid education is a whole lifetime. The acquisition and development of a thirst for knowledge is the building block for any successful school. We face many challenges in today’s modern world and it is imperative that our youth are equipped with the knowledge, character and strength of purpose to navigate such trials. I am confident that the future alumni of James Hope College will have the integrity, wisdom and strength to be future leaders in whatever endeavours they pursue’.
Furthermore, at James Hope College we offer every child the opportunity to:
Good character is attained by the upright and those who remain upright have a high sense of self-discipline. Where students stray from the sphere of self-discipline the staff will intervene to remind and enforce school rules and regulations.
In a short while, we will also strive to acquire specialist status in Science and in Sports. In essence, this means that in addition to our regular Science and PE lessons, extra funds will be directed to these areas so that students can be provided the opportunity to engage in additional programmes and competitions in these areas.
In the area of Sports, we will be drawing on the rich tradition of sporting excellence set by the youth of Delta State – the reigning National Sports champion and runners up in the National School Sports competition.
