Why Support Great Hearts?

More than just preparing students for college, Great Hearts prepares students for leadership and innovation in any field in which they choose to endeavor—and for lives filled with purpose.

Despite the fact that our scholars receive less public funding than district school students, Great Hearts provides a world-class, liberal arts education with robust athletics and extra-curricular programs. Charitable contributions from our parents and community partners allow Great Hearts to sustain results that often exceed those of elite or exclusive private schools in a public school setting open to all.

More than just preparing students for college, Great Hearts prepares students for leadership and innovation in any field in which they choose to endeavor—and for lives filled with purpose. A truly classical, liberal arts education is needed to produce well-rounded, thoughtful students, where a child’s intellectual capacity for precision, insight, and eloquence is developed through conducting experiments, solving math problems, exploring imaginative worlds, and producing fine art. In addition, participating in classroom conversations over great works of philosophy, history, and literature instills the habits of civil discourse in the humane pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty.

This type of curriculum aligns with and advances the ideas of a free and virtuous society by teaching self-reliance, independent thinking, and a strong work ethic. Classical education instills in students the importance of thinking for themselves and giving back to their community, in addition to encouraging them to strive for individual success.

Great Hearts seeks to transform communities and cities by creating self-sustaining networks of high-performing charter schools. We long to open more school doors to cultivate the hearts and minds of students to pursue Truth, Goodness and Beauty. There is no greater social investment than education. Please join us in this moral imperative for our country.
