Great Hearts Academies will begin piloting Great Hearts Microschools for families enrolled in Great Hearts Online Arizona this fall.
Great Hearts Microschools will be co-created with families to build small, flexible learning communities that deliver a Great Hearts classical education in a revolutionary way.
The Archway Classical Academy Glendale-Great Hearts campus is located at 23276 N. 83rd Ave., Suite 1, Peoria.
“Great Hearts Microschools provide an opportunity for communities to combine the flexibility and depth of our exceptional online academy with the best of small group in-person socializing, culture and relationship,” Kurtis Indorf, Great Hearts Nova president, a new division overseeing the launch of Great Hearts Microschools, stated in a news release. “The potential of Great Hearts Microschools to leverage the strengths of community, bring families together in fellowship, and realize a truly premier, classical education model is significant.”
Great Hearts Microschools will be a private pay option that offers a blend of virtual learning and communities of students learning, growing and playing together in person.
“Families see the power and potential of a classical, liberal arts education: where holistic student formation, rigorous academic depth, critical thinking, and living in good relationship are prioritized above the trivial objectives of other educational models,” Great Hearts America CEO Jay Heiler stated.
Microschools are smaller school communities than traditional schools, serving between ten and 100 students each. They are normally mixed-age learning communities and known for their flexibility and customized learning environments. Microschools are seen as an intersection of homeschooling and private schooling, prioritizing exceptional academics with flexibility, family time and passions beyond school and home.
