The last two years of navigating the schools and academic decisions for our families have been both challenging and quite frankly, really confusing. At times there seems to be no great option for our children. But at the end of the day we all have to do what is best for our own kids. It is important to consider all of the available choices before making such a huge decision in the life of your child. Maybe you’ve thought about homeschooling or other online programs but are unsure where to start. Enter Great Hearts Online.
Great Hearts Online (GHO) is a tuition-free, virtual academy based on a classical liberal arts curriculum. They offer a robust arts program with an advanced math and science focus. Read more about the Great Hearts philosophy here and see sample curriculum schedules here.
Great Hearts is no stranger to our Phoenix-area friends boasting 23 brick-and-mortar campuses throughout the area. However, last year Great Hearts Online was launched to serve the entire state of Arizona offering all K-8 students access to the same rich, classical curriculum. GHO families truly get the best of both worlds: structured learning that meets all state standards and the familiar comforts of home where shoes are optional.
Parents love that they are not just focusing on the academic success of their students but also focusing on the development of the whole child. Their core purpose is to cultivate the minds and hearts of students through the pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty.
The program is open to kindergarten through eighth grade students anywhere in Arizona. What an amazing opportunity for a tuition free school available for all of our Arizona school-aged children! Plus they are launching their online high school program in the 2024-25 academic school year.
The online live instruction is led by engaging teachers with a small classroom setting. Classes are offered Monday through Thursday and include meaningful offline assignments. Being able to have the flexibility of a homeschool family with the structure of a traditional school curriculum truly offers you the best of both worlds.
Great Hearts has a reputation for providing a strong academic curriculum to their students and a history of professional faculty that is there to support your family and see to your child’s success. In kindergarten through third grade, there are 15 (or less) students in a class and in the older grades, there are no more than 24 students in a class. The schedule and small class size was intentionally created to help form close-knit communities for both the students and parents.
