Campus Dedication

Dear Great Hearts North Phoenix families,

Welcome back! The joy and excitement was palpable this last week as we welcomed all new and returning families to Great Hearts North Phoenix's beautiful new campus.

We invite all Prep and Archway parents to join us on Thursday, August 31 at 5:30 p.m. to formally dedicate our new campus as a forum for the pursuit of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty. State Representative Maria Syms and other key community members will also be present for this momentous occasion.

The leadership gifts from these generous families have made it possible to open our doors. Our community has already committed $558,400 in confirmed pledges with another $393,600 pending toward our $1.3 million goal. We greatly appreciate your generous support to The Foundation For The Future campaign as together we complete our new campus home!

Funds raised through our capital campaign will support several key campus needs, such as:
  • Shade structure and turf for the Archway playground
  • Science lab equipment 
  • Nurse's suite materials
  • Library buildout and furnishings 
  • Classroom projectors
  • Athletic equipment such as bleachers, scoreboards, field lighting and weight room equipment
  • Sound systems for the library and gymnasium
We look forward to inviting all families to join The Foundation For The Future campaign. Please visit our campaign page here to learn about the impact of every dollar and our many Commemorative Giving Opportunities. To continue the good work begun by Emily Lawson, we welcome Great Hearts development staff member Rachel LeBeau to direct the remainder of our successful capital campaign. Ms. LeBeau looks forward to meeting all of our Great Hearts North Phoenix families, and may be reached anytime at or 602-386-1878.

It is an honor and a joy for us to serve the North Phoenix community. The magnanimity of those of you who have already contributed warms our hearts, and we hope that those of you who have yet to join The Foundation For The Future campaign will do so soon to help us complete our new campus.

There is no limit to the excellence we can achieve together as a community.

With gratitude,

Headmaster Letter

Dear North Phoenix Prep Families,

This week, I want to share a story with you about the way our students are already affecting our local community.  Our Archway Dean, Mrs. Sneed, was visiting the Starbucks inside our local Safeway the other day.  When the barista saw the crest on her ID badge, she came out from behind the counter excitedly to shake Dean Sneed's hand.  With a big smile, the barista exclaimed, "You're from that school! Your students have been coming here, and they are so unbelievably respectful and polite!" She then explained that she had never encountered teenagers who were so consistently courteous.

Moments like these are a sign that virtue is taking hold in the souls of our students.  When our students say please and thank you, and when they treat others with respect, they exhibit their understanding of the intrinsic dignity of all people.  When they speak confidently with adults, they display the skills of clear communication that they are learning in our classrooms.  Our students are receiving intellectual, moral, and aesthetic life through their education at North Phoenix Prep--and people are taking notice!

We have a number of exciting events lined up for the next few weeks.  Please take note especially of the PSO Mixer on August 26th and Curriculum Night on September 7th.  I look forward to seeing you at both of these great opportunities for fellowship and community!

With Devotion,
Headmaster Weinhold
