Welcome to Great Hearts Archway North Phoenix
Welcome to Archway Classical Academy – North Phoenix,
What an exciting time in the life of our academy and we are thrilled that you are looking into Archway North Phoenix as a home for your child’s educational journey.
Archway North Phoenix is a K-6 elementary school within the Great Hearts network of schools. Enjoying our 5th year of operation, our students are partaking in a rigorous classical education that includes world & American history and geography, grammar and composition, poetry, French and Latin, art, music, physical education, penmanship, spelling, science, mathematics, and classical literature.
We read great books of literature that exemplify the virtues that we are founded on – friendship, honesty, perseverance, respect, kindness, humility, friendship, citizenship and wisdom. We mentor and lead by example so that our scholars can visibly see what it is to live a virtuous life. We actively pursue recognizing when these virtues take place and when they do not, helping children to make the right choices regarding situations they are presented with each day. Our core purpose is to cultivate the minds and hearts of students through the pursuit of Truth, Goodness and Beauty.
We ask that you take time to explore the website, sign up for a tour, and contact us with questions.

I look forward to meeting you and partnering with you in your child’s education.
