A Great Hearts education prepares students to be more than just proficient test takers, but rather, to become great-hearted leaders capable of success throughout their higher education and professional careers. We emphasize that in order for students to become great-hearted leaders they must share in a knowledge that is rooted in the classical liberal arts tradition.
While students will learn at different paces, we believe that true education is a matter of development over time and within a stable community. At Great Hearts we give our students individualized attention, but always within a unified, multi-disciplined curriculum.View Curriculum
