Esprit de Corps Center for Learning was established in 2001. The vision for the school was birthed from the mind of God in the heart of Dr. Jeannette C. Holmes-Vann, the Pastor and Founder of Hope Chapel Ministries, Inc. The school was built in the interest of training boys and girls for their future as adults who adhere to the tenants of morality and patriotism for the betterment of home, church, workplace, and society. Dr. Holmes-Vann’s vision included a return to a traditional educational model founded on Christian principles and values. In accordance with this vision, each component of the school was purposefully selected and designed.
The end of the 2010-2011 school year marked our 10th year of educating youth and the graduation of our 5th Senior class.
Mission The mission of Esprit de Corps Center for Learning is to provide a safe and nurturing atmosphere of Christian moral excellence where students are trained to lead godly lives in a multicultural and technologically sophisticated society.
Our academic expectations reflect our commitment to excellence and success.
