Our great-hearted graduates are prepared to live full and meaningful lives in the 21st century. We lead students to pursue not just success, but goodness. We inspire them to love what is true, good, and beautiful.
A Great Hearts education teaches the skills and habits necessary to live successful and meaningful lives: good character, creativity, critical thinking, and the power to communicate. Our students are taught to deploy their gifts and skills for a purpose beyond themselves.
They are ready to lead and serve.
A Great Hearts education is anchored in the classical and time-tested approach to virtue, which makes it ever-relevant in our ever-changing world. Our students experience arts, academics, and athletics in a comprehensive manner where their moral purpose is developed just as much as their knowledge and skills. We cultivate the whole student—mind and heart—and we inspire children with the greatest examples of personal integrity and heroism.
Our students develop their unique talents and unlock their hidden creativity through an education that connects them with the most inspiring examples of genius in history: Shakespeare, Rembrandt, Mozart, Austen, Einstein, and a hundred more. Students first model the excellence of the great men and women who came before, cultivate the language and tools of the arts, and mature to create original works and express their own profound insights.
In the midst of a 21st-century world saturated in both information and misinformation, Great Hearts teaches young people to think clearly and carefully. Our students learn to read and observe attentively, to ask penetrating questions, and to think logically and reasonably about a wide variety of topics. They learn how to judge correctly and when to suspend judgment. They learn the difference between truth and opinion.
Great Hearts equips students with highly developed skills of communication. They will lead their generation in their ability to speak, read, write, and listen. They will thrive in the boardroom, the courtroom, the laboratory, or any public arena to which they are called.
