Our program runs from September through June. The cost is $100 per semester. Our Orientation will be on Tuesday September 17th at 1:00 PM. New parents are welcome to come and ask questions and find out more about our program.


The Isaac Academy meets on Tuesdays from 1:00pm­ – 4:00pm. We spend time in the Prayer Room each week in worship and intercession. Children take turns leading the prayer meeting and interceding for what it on the Lord’s heart. All of their prayers are based on passages of the Bible that they have studied. After our time in the Prayer Room we share our experiences with one another. The children also spend time in The Secret Place journaling all that the Lord has revealed to them.


All of our lessons emphasize the importance of intimacy with Jesus and a love for the Word of God. We develop our own curriculum. Our lessons come from the Prayer Room. We pray each week for what we feel is on the Lord’s heart. We believe that prayer is talking to the Lord and listening for His response. We know that the prayers of the children are precious and powerful. We teach and encourage them to encounter the Lord for themselves.


We believe that encounters with The Lord are found in the place of Prayer. Our lessons and our curriculum are developed in the prayer room. We give them time in the prayer room with prayer room intercessors that will encourage them in expressing themselves in prayer and worship. This gives them the tools that they need to pray effectively.


We are not just reading Bible stories. We are teaching children to love the word and to know the word. I Samuel 3 tells us that the Lord called Samuel as a child and because of that encounter we believe that children are called to be forerunners. They do not need to be adults to learn to serve the Lord and prepare the way for His return.​​


We will be strengthened in our prayer life when we are connected to The Lord in the Secret Place. Children will learn to talk and listen to The Lord as a lifestyle.​


We are working on expanding our program in order to also reach more children that are in school. We are developing workshops for the whole family. They will take place on Saturdays. We plan to have them quarterly throughout the year. For more information about this please contact Lucy at Lucym@ihopeg.org



Deuteronomy 6 tells us that we are to teach our children the commandments of the Lord in every area of their lives. We have developed a Deuteronomy 6 support group. Our D6 support groups are a time where parents can share their struggles and victories and pray for and encourage one another. We believe that encounters with The Lord are found in the place of prayer. What makes The Isaac Academy unique is that children and parents are able to encounter The Lord together as a family.
