Introducing Great Hearts Christos

Great Hearts Christos January 30, 2023

Great Hearts Christos CrestGreat Hearts is expanding its school network to include Great Hearts Christos, private Christian Academies in Arizona, which will include faith formation interwoven with a time-tested classical program.

 Christos Academies are a separate, faith-based, non-profit, private school arm of the Great Hearts organization committed to creating and offering the best ecumenical Christian academies in the country. Because they are private schools, the Christos Academies’ programs can, and do, integrate Christ-centered faith formation along with the proven classical model that has made Great Hearts academies the national leader in classical education.
