After-School Athenaeum is a tuition-based program designed to reinforce the lessons learned in your child’s classroom, complementing our mission as a classical, liberal arts institution.
The Athenaeum (ath-uh-nay-uhm) was originally a school in Rome, founded by Emperor Hadrian in 133 A.D. for the promotion of literary and scientific studies.
Similarly, Great Hearts Athenaeum After-School Program is focused on the liberal arts and promotes learning by providing students dedicated homework time in addition to a diverse array of culturally enriching, academically oriented activities beyond the classroom. But it’s not all academics! Athenaeum scholars also enjoy time for recreation, games, socializing and just plain fun. Athenaeum runs daily from the dismissal bell (even on early release and half-days) until 6:00 p.m. Flexible and affordable options are available to fit any family’s after-school needs.

Great Hearts Summer Camp is reminiscent of traditional camps from our childhood with the same quality you have come to expect from Great Hearts. Each week, scholars will experience hands-on, engaging activities in fine arts, reading, writing, crafts, science, math, and history – all designed to inspire creativity and keep skills sharp over the summer. Each Camp also offers weekly guest presenters, camp songs and games while fostering lasting friendships.
Kinder Academy is designed to acclimate incoming Kindergarten students to the Archway Schools, Great Hearts curriculum, and the academy teachers. Each week scholars will be taken on an adventure to practice the skills needed in Kindergarten.
Information for Summer Programs 2021 will be available Spring of 2021.
In response to delayed in-person start dates for academies, the Great Hearts Athenaeum After-School Program will take the following actions on accounts:
*The amount paid upon registration will be applied to the first month of in-person Athenaeum attendance.
*If the first-month fee amount needs to be adjusted for any reason, the Billing Specialist will communicate these adjustments directly with the account holder.
*All automatic billing will be suspended until in-person instruction resumes. Automatic billing will resume for the second month of attendance and beyond.
If you enroll your child in Distance Learning, or will not be returning for in-person instruction for the duration of the 2020-21 school year, or have any questions regarding your account, please contact the Billing Specialist at Programs@GreatHeartsAZ.org or 602-396-7574 to make any necessary adjustments to your account.
