Our academies are bastions of academic rigor and excellence and attract students who are curious and diligent.
Classes are run Socratically - teachers are expected to be guides as well as participants in the search for Truth, Goodness, and Beauty.
The faculty of Great Hearts Academies is a true community of life-long learners who, together, participate in seminars, attend classical music concerts, hear lectures on art, philosophy, mathematics, and other topics in the liberal arts, and enjoy frequent fellowship (frequently over food and drink!)
Certification is not required (for other than SPED roles); while many of our teachers do come from education programs or other local public schools, many others hold undergraduate/graduate degrees in the academic subjects they teach and/or from top liberal arts programs.
APPRENTICE TEACHER PROGRAM

Great Hearts Academies is a growing non-profit network of public charter schools currently serving approximately 17,000 students in Arizona and Texas. 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.
