Welcome to Great Hearts Archway North Phoenix, Serving Grades K-5
Dear Prospective Families and Community Members,
Welcome to Archway North Phoenix, a flourishing academy offering a K-5 classical education in the heart of Phoenix, Arizona. As a tuition-free, public charter school, we are honored to offer an unparalleled elementary school experience, deeply rooted in the traditions of classical learning. Our academy, a proud member of the Great Hearts network, is committed to nurturing the intellectual and moral growth of young learners, providing them with a foundation that prepares them not only for academic success but also for a life of virtue and purpose.
With more than a decade in operation, Archway North Phoenix stands as a testament to the transformative power of a classical education. Our kindergarten through 5th grade curriculum is an enriching tapestry that weaves together world and American history, geography, grammar and composition, poetry, French and Latin, art, music, physical education, penmanship, spelling, science, mathematics, and classical literature. This comprehensive approach ensures that each student develops a deep understanding of the rich cultural heritage of our civilization, and an appreciation for the enduring values it imparts.
At the heart of our educational philosophy is the belief in the inherent potential of each child. We read great works of literature that not only engage the intellect but also exemplify the virtues upon which our school is founded – friendship, honesty, perseverance, respect, kindness, humility, citizenship, and wisdom. Our teachers are not merely instructors; they are mentors and role models, leading by example to show our scholars what it means to live a virtuous life.
We recognize that education is a journey that involves both the mind and the heart. At Archway North Phoenix, we actively engage in recognizing and cultivating these virtues, guiding our students to make ethical choices and navigate the challenges they encounter daily. Our core purpose is to cultivate the minds and hearts of students through the pursuit of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty, principles that are the bedrock of our classical academy.
Our vibrant campus life extends beyond the classroom. We encourage you to explore our website, sign up for a tour, and engage with our community. The News and Events page will keep you informed about campus happenings and current calendar information. The Academics tab provides an in-depth look at our curriculum, special education offerings, and a comprehensive list of literature, textbooks, and supplies used at each grade level.
Athletics play a significant role in our school culture, with a program that offers a variety of sports activities on Wednesdays throughout the school year. Our Academy Life tab includes information about our After-school Program, Athenaeum, which provides care and enrichment for all students. Additionally, you will find details about our lunch program, uniform requirements, and a copy of our family handbook.
The Parent Service Organization (PSO) is a vital part of our community, offering numerous opportunities for parents to engage and contribute to the vibrant life of our school. We invite you to explore the PSO tab to learn more about how you can be involved.
Archway North Phoenix is more than a school; it is a community where young minds are nurtured, virtues are cultivated, and a lifelong love of learning is ignited. We are dedicated to partnering with you in your child’s education, providing an environment where they can thrive academically, morally, and socially.
We eagerly anticipate the opportunity to meet you, to share the exceptional experience that Archway North Phoenix offers, and to embark together on this enriching educational journey. Join us in shaping a future that is not only academically successful but also rich in character and wisdom.
