Headmaster Letter

Dear North Phoenix Prep Families,

A huge advantage that comes with a Great Hearts education is the focused mentorship and guidance that each student receives from a college counselor like Ms. Smith.  A student who spoke with me in the senior commons recently had the following to say: "Applying to college is stressful, but it's not like at other schools where the counselor may not even know your name.  Ms. Smith is always encouraging us and helping us find the college that's best for us."

The college that's best for us means that we help our students become more self-aware so that they make choices that are truly in their best interest.  Common sense leads us to believe that our students thrive when they attend colleges and universities that fit with who they are.

It turns out that there's actually hard data to back this approach.  Click below to watch best-selling journalist, Malcolm Gladwell, speak on the value of choosing a college based on fit and not labels.

Thanks to Ms. Smith for her dedication to helping our students reach the next step of their educational journey!  Interested in learning more about college counseling at North Phoenix Prep?  Click Here and Here for loads of additional information!

With Devotion,
