The mission of Great Hearts Academies is to create a network of academically rigorous, classical, liberal arts primary, middle, and high schools in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area. This network will prepare its graduates for success in the most highly selective colleges and universities in the nation, and to be leaders in creating a more philosophical, humane, and just society. Great Hearts' public academies surpass the best public and private school options in academic outcomes, student moral formation, and comprehensive extra-curricular participation.
The ultimate goal of the organization is to graduate "great-hearted" young men and women who possess a sense of destiny and purpose that is directed to the service of the greater good. By engaging in an intense and formative dialogue with the Great Books and Ideas of Western Culture, by conversing with peers and teachers who also seek the truth, students come to understand more fully what it means to be a human being.
