At Great Hearts Online, we believe every child deserves access to a quality education. Our virtual academy does this by offering a rigorous, tuition-free, classical curriculum to students from diverse backgrounds and across multiple states. Great Hearts Online currently serves students in grades K-8 and will be serving K-9 in the 2023-2024 school year then adding another grade level each year after until we are K-12.
Our purpose is to cultivate the hearts and minds of students in pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty. We seek truth in the sciences and math, goodness in the characters of the classics read. We see boundless beauty in the fine arts, patterns of math, design of the universe, and eloquence of language. As we learn and immerse in truth, goodness, and beauty, we begin to understand what it means to really be human.
Dedicated teachers and classmates combined with the supportive home environment is a beautiful blend for families that seek to learn, explore and play together within a structured environment. A response to our changing world, Great Hearts Online is a partner with families for the whole of scholars’ learning.
Great Hearts focuses on the whole child, mind and heart. Our classical curriculum is rooted in nine virtues woven into every subject and discussed in class: Responsibility, perseverance, integrity, honesty, courage, citizenship, humility, friendship, and wisdom.
“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” ~Aristotle
We focus on virtues in all areas of learning whether it’s discussing the goodness of characters in a classical book or discovering truth in the patterns of math.
