Headmaster Letter

Dear North Phoenix Prep Families,

Allow me to brag on our students for just a moment.  Check out this article on one of our amazing Seniors, Moriah Irving.  She's headed to Scripps College in the Fall, and we are so proud!  Then we have this announcement about another Senior, Vinamra Kumar, who has been accepted into the KEYS Research Internship Program.  Both of these incredible young people demonstrate what's possible when we pursue Truth, Goodness, and Beauty together.  

They are also a testimony to the wisdom of one of Great Hearts' Philosophical Pillars: "The greatest number of our students benefit when the intellectual and moral bar is set high in the classroom.  Lowering expectations is an act of misguided sympathy, not of love and mercy."  At our Academy, all students experience a vigorous curriculum and a culture that inspires them to accomplish more than what initially seems possible.  The message that our students receive is "plus est en vous": there is more in you.  When our students believe this, and when we all strive together toward the same goal, the result is a transformation of both heart and mind, and young people made wholly alive,  poised to serve the world's deepest needs. 

Please join me in celebrating the accomplishments of our Seniors, and in anticipating the growth and maturity of many more young Gladiators in the years to come!

With Devotion,
Headmaster Weinhold
