Curriculum Overview

Classics to Keep

Books are at the core of a classical, liberal arts education. At Great Hearts Academies, it has always been the tradition for students to develop a personal library of books which constitute the core reading of a Great Hearts education. We call these books “Classics to Keep.” Parents and guardians are strongly encouraged to purchase these books for their students’ personal collections so that they can thoughtfully annotate them during class discussions and then keep them for years after — allowing students to develop their own impressive personal library of classics over the course of their academic career with Great Hearts.
