Company Description

Great Hearts Academies is a non-profit network of charter schools dedicated to improving education by developing excelling public prep schools.  Great Hearts’ academies are substantially outperforming other public and private schools, proving that tuition-free schools can do a superb job of educating students if they are smaller, more efficient, and set higher expectations for all students through a core, classical liberal arts curriculum.  We gladly prepare our graduates for success in the best colleges and universities in the nation, but our main purpose is the formation of the soul, heart, and mind.  We believe that the highest goal of education is to become good, intellectually and morally.  The success of Great Hearts is based on combining an unwavering commitment to classical liberal arts education with the understanding that our schools can constantly be improved through sound, data-driven leadership. 

Great Hearts is currently comprised of a network of twenty-nine academies in Phoenix, Irving, and San Antonio. Currently, we server more than 13,000 students across our network.
