Welcome to Live Oak
Dear Friends of Great Hearts Live Oak,
It is an honor to serve as the founding headmaster of Great Hearts Live Oak. As the proud parent of three Great Hearts graduates, I have experienced firsthand the life-changing power of this rich liberal arts education, and I am excited to partner with you in building a home for tuition-free classical education in North Bexar, South Comal, and West Guadalupe counties.Great Hearts Live Oak will open in August 2020 with grades K-7, and we will add a grade every year until we celebrate the graduation of our first class of seniors in May 2026.
Verum, Pulchrum, Bonum—Truth, Beauty, Goodness—is the motto of every Great Hearts Academy. A Socratic and collaborative engagement with our rigorous curriculum willcultivate a hunger for Truth, an attunement to Beauty, and an alignment with Goodness. Supported by a firm foundation in Spalding phonics and careful attention to word choice and grammatical structures, students will engage timeless literary classics and examine primary historical texts. Singapore math will develop strong mathematical reasoning that will blossom in explorations of Euclidian geometry and calculus in the high school. Observation and experimentation will ignite scientific discovery of the natural and physical world. Encounters with master works in music and fine art paired with expert instruction in theory and technique will awaken the aesthetic senses.
More than a curriculum, Great Hearts Live Oak is a community—a nurturing home for learners and leaders. Located within a growing and diverse community, we are proud to create a haven for learning that unifies us in a common and noble pursuit.Faculty and staff are carefully selected and developed for their professional expertise, moral character, and aspirational vision for education. Students will grow as friends and citizens within a joyful and ordered culture that honors their humanity while developing the habits of mind and heart that will lead to personal, professional, and civic virtue. Families will find a faculty and staff that is eager to partner with them in support of their students, faculty, and each other.
We look forward to growing with you and your children!
Your partner in the pursuit of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness,
