High Hopes

...embracing uniqueness, inspiring growth 

Our Mission

Equip children, youth, and their families with the skills necessary to succeed through education, therapeutic services, and loving support. 

Who We Are

Since 1984, High Hopes has perfected the concept of meeting people where they are. For us, that means not being intimidated by a diagnosis or inability. Our specialty is to find solutions for challenges that families did not see coming and prove there is hope in adversity.

High Hopes' 30,000-square-foot state-of-the-art campus is a destination where hope is found, taught, and delivered. Children of all abilities learn and grow together in a supportive and loving environment that provides the tools for a strong, successful foundation. 

Our unique brand of support is delivered through The Hoover Pediatric Therapy Clinic
and The Thompson Preschool.

Our Services

Our preschool provides rigorous learning and growth opportunities using a curriculum tied to the TN Early Learning Development Standards. Our learning community embraces one another’s unique differences and abilities, equipping learners by fostering acceptance, celebrating successes, and nurturing leadership.

Pediatric Therapy Clinic

High Hopes serves children and youth, from birth through young adulthood in a child-friendly, resource-rich environment that provides therapy services that are both fun and rewarding.
