Great Hearts Christos

Phoenix, Ariz.

Great Hearts Academies, a multistate charter school operator serving more than 26,000 students, will launch its first two private schools under the Christos name in fall 2023 in the Phoenix area. Together they will serve around 350 students in grades K-5. Great Hearts Christos intends to unite three institutions that have “preserved the heritage of freedom and virtue in the West for three millennia: the Christian Church, the Family, and Classical, Liberal Arts education.” Built upon Great Hearts’ charter model of classical education, GH Christos will attempt to layer in explicit faith formation as part of the Great Hearts character development strand. The Christos schools will partner with existing churches and engage the local pastors in developing and maintaining the schools’ Christian culture.
