Great Hearts Academies is a growing network of 43 public, open-enrollment, tuition-free schools in San Antonio (TX), Dallas/Ft. Worth (TX), Phoenix (AZ), and Baton Rouge (LA). We currently provide over 24,000 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.
At Great Hearts, we believe the world is ordered and the human intellect, while imperfect, can attain knowledge of reality through reason, hard work, and a coherent program of study. We believe truth exists, and we must seek it by disciplined study and good-willed conversation. An ideal candidate will be a humble, curious, passionately-committed team player with a servant's heart, who is driven to offer students from a variety of backgrounds a beautiful classical, liberal arts education. As a charter school network, Great Hearts has the autonomy to hire teachers from all industries, as teaching credentials or certifications are not required. Great Hearts maintains a model that offers training through the Apprentice Teaching program, with pathways to obtain bachelor’s degrees and other coursework and certifications while working full-time.
