Please see our COVID-19 Updates page for the latest news from the district.  Latest update: 3/30/2020 (Prom Information)


The Beaver County School Districts and the Career and Technology Center continue to work together as we receive guidance from our state and federal leaders. Today, Governor Wolf announced that all schools will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year.  Therefore, all Beaver County school facilities are closed and events cancelled through the end of the school year.  While much uncertainty still exists, this announcement will allow families to plan for their needs in the coming months.  All schools will continue to provide continuity of education and meals through the last regularly scheduled day of school.  We understand that this is heartbreaking for the Class of 2020, but please be patient as we seek additional guidance from our state leaders regarding graduation and other special events.  We appreciate your patience and support during this closure and we will continue to provide updates as we move forward together.

The breakfast and lunch pickups are still on-going at the Junior High and Independence Elementary School between 11-1 each weekday. 


Device Pickup Information: 

 If a Hopewell student is still in need of a device for continuity of instruction, please let your child’s teacher know.

Overview of District

The Hopewell Area School District is located in the southern portion of Beaver County where it borders Allegheny County and lies approximately twenty miles northwest of Pittsburgh.  It consists of three townships:  Hopewell, Independence and Raccoon.

The District has an enrollment of approximately 2100 students.  The students are divided into three grade configurations:  K-4, 5-8 and 9-12.  The K-4 population attend neighborhood schools throughout the District.  This organization was maintained to reflect the local preference for neighborhood schools.  These buildings act as feeders to the centrally located junior high school where grades 5-8 are housed.  Finally, the senior high is found approximately one fourth mile from the junior high and accommodates grades 9-12.

We are extremely proud of our school district and community.  Welcome to Viking country where we share our Hopewell students', district's, and community's Purpose, Passion, and Pride.
