• School Closings/Delays:

    Dear Troup County School System Community, 

    Governor Brian Kemp just issued an Executive Order mandating all schools in Georgia will remain closed for in-person instruction for the remainder of the school year. This includes TCSS.

    Please note that current grade calculations will be based upon student mastery of material covered through March 12, 2020 which was the end of the third nine weeks grading period. Student learning will continue after our scheduled Spring Break. We don’t want our kids to lose the valuable knowledge and skills they have gained this school year. Teachers will be contacting their students and working with them to ensure additional opportunities are available for students to demonstrate mastery of previously covered material. More details will be available the week of April 13th.

    At this time, we do not have any further updates. We know there are academic milestones and other events that our students and families were looking forward to this year. As updates are available, we will share them. 

    Over the past several weeks, our commitment to the students and the families of TCSS has been paramount. We will continue this commitment through the closure. Together, we will all get through this.

    Thank you,

Close alert

Interim Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians,                                                                                                                                                                                                       02/18/2020

I am very excited about my appointment as Interim Principal of The HOPE Academy, effective Tuesday, February 11, 2020. I have served as the Assistant Principal at The HOPE Academy for the past four years. My tenure and experience have allowed for a smooth transition as our most recent principal decided to pursue a different opportunity. I strongly believe that a parent-school partnership is critical for the success of students, and I look forward to working with you and your child.


We will expect the following from our faculty, staff, and students:

  1. Respect for SELF

  2. Respect for OTHER STUDENTS

  3. Respect for FACULTY/STAFF

  4. Respect for our SCHOOL


Although our academic environment is not traditional, our goal is to prepare our students to return to his/her home school with the skills necessary to be successful in school and in his/her personal life. We will continue developing a school culture at The HOPE Academy that is both healthy and productive. 


My door is always open, and I welcome your input. I am available by phone at 706-812-7988 or email at woodyra@troup.org.  I am confident that if we continue working as a team of students, parents, teachers, staff, and administration, we can build on the foundation that is here at The HOPE Academy.




Dr. Rebecca Woody

Interim Principal

The HOPE Academy
