By offering a classical liberal arts curriculum, Great Hearts not only cultivates the hearts and minds of students in the pursuit of Truth, Beauty and Goodness, but also graduates great-hearted leaders prepared for success at the top colleges and universities worldwide.
Our students receive a liberal arts education through immersion in subjects such as Language Arts, Math, History, Science, French and Latin, as well as Art, Music, and Physical Education. In each of these subjects, we employ Socratic Instruction, in which the teacher uses guided questions to help the student discover, ask his or her own questions, and truly come to know the concept being covered in a deep and meaningful way. A student’s sense of wonder and depth of inquiry is celebrated and fostered.
