Why Great Hearts

Great Hearts has grown to become a leader in public charter education by providing a Classical liberal arts curriculum.

We have worked tirelessly to ensure our students receive an outstanding and relevant education.

Today, we serve approximately 22,500 students at 34 academies across Arizona and Texas.


Virtue is the flagship publication of the Great Hearts Institute. It disseminates stories, ideas, research and experiences in classical education to readers across the nation, helping them pursue the classical ideals of truth, goodness, and beauty.

Subscribing to Virtue’s mailing list is absolutely free. Sign-up today to receive your first copy!

New academies can only be created with substantial philanthropic investment:

At Great Hearts, we believe that a classical education is not only for the privileged few, but for every child, no matter their zip code. We invite you to help us bring a classical education to dozens of additional communities and thousands more children as we aim to bring a Great Hearts education to more than 50,000 students by 2025.

Great Hearts provides donors an opportunity to shape a generation of hearts and minds.
