Great Hearts Prairie View, a K-8 Classical Academy
Dear Prospective Families,
I am honored to welcome you to the newest Great Hearts school in North Texas: Great Hearts Prairie View. At Great Hearts Prairie View, you will be ushered into a community that embraces a tradition of humanity that spans thousands of years old and be exposed to the best of what has been said and written. This tradition is a classical education in the liberal arts and sciences: an education that cultivates the hearts and minds of students through the pursuit of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty.
Our primary tool of cultivation is the Socratic Method. We seek to employ this timeless teaching technique, in which the teacher uses questions and conversations to guide students from what they already know, to what they do not yet know, in all subjects. It is the development of these academic habits that causes students to inquire deeply, while also feeding their curious sense of wonder. The Great Hearts Prairie View academic program is dedicated to cultivating and tending a love of learning from kindergarten through high school graduation.
The great books of our Western tradition will ignite their imaginations, while simultaneously facilitating conversations about wisdom and philosophy. Our Singapore Math program takes students on a journey, demonstrating concepts in concrete, real forms before revealing the same idea through pictorial representations that conclude with the familiar, yet abstract, equations, formulas and algorithms.
Our science curriculum is hands-on and historical, while our study of history is in-depth, as students frequently engage with primary sources. The study of language is a critical component of education, and in our classical tradition, all students will study Latin.
In music and art, our students will experience and also create beauty by imitating and studying the masters. Our physical education program, like every other aspect of our curriculum, seeks to create a lifelong love of movement and activity.
Our schools are filled with carefully chosen faculty who demonstrate expertise in their subject area, while also exhibiting the wonder and moral character we seek to develop in our students. This pursuit of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty will inspire and shape students into the best versions of themselves, setting in motion growth that will continue the rest of their lives.
And so, it is with a mind toward our pursuit of excellence, our labor of love, and our endurance of hope that we invite you to join us in our extraordinary calling; to provide a classical education to the families of Fort Worth and empower future generations with the full intellectual, moral, and esthetic inheritance of the Western tradition.
I look forward to meeting you all personally,
