About Great Hearts Academies (Great Hearts America)

Great Hearts Academies is a growing network of 45 public, open-enrollment, tuition-free schools in San Antonio (TX), Dallas/Ft. Worth (TX), Phoenix (AZ), Baton Rouge (LA) and expanding to Jacksonville & Orlando (FL) (in 2025).

We currently provide over 25,000 K-12 students with access to a high quality, classical liberal arts education, without the barriers that often come with private prep schools. We gladly prepare our graduates for success in the best universities in the nation, but our main purpose is the formation of the soul, heart, and mind. We believe that the highest goal of education is to become good -- intellectually and morally. Teaching certification is not required for general ed., and we hire teachers from across all academic disciplines and departments.
