Capital Campaign Overview
Since its launch in 2003, Great Hearts Academies has become a proven leader in the public charter school market. Beginning as a single academy in Phoenix, Great Hearts now educates more than 15,000 students at 28 academies across Arizona and Texas.
Located in the strategic center of Dallas/Fort Worth, the Irving campus of Great Hearts is the first school of Great Hearts Academies in North Texas. Great Hearts Irving (GHI) is positioned to become a hub from which to launch an educational revolution in the city of Irving, North Texas and beyond. In doing so, GHI seeks to radically transform the trajectory of the lives of thousands of young men and women for generations to come.
Since its beginning in 2015/2016, GHI has seen remarkable growth attracting students largely from Irving but also from dozens of communities across Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW). With 766 students (K-7) its first year, GHI now serves approximately 1,200 students (K-11). With a current wait list of more than 1,600 students, GHI seeks to address the demand by expanding its footprint and mission impact in the community.
Great Hearts Irving has been in a leased facility located at 3350 Story Rd W. The Lower School will remain at this location until its permanent academic building is constructed a few years from now. This year, the new Upper School building was completed and welcomed students at 3520 World Cup Way. This property, owned by Great Hearts, will eventually be the permanent campus for the full Great Hearts Irving K-12 academy. Great Hearts needs financial help in building the gymnasium, which will feature basketball and volleyball courts, scoreboards, a performance stage, bleachers, locker-rooms, a catering kitchen, and will serve as the school’s cafeteria.
