Great Hearts Academies to explore Dallas and Irving
Great Hearts Academies is excited to grow our network of schools into the great state of Texas! We are in the process of opening our first school in San Antonio, and we are now exploring the prospect of moving into the Dallas-Fort Worth region, including a potential campus in Irving!
Our goal is to open our first K-12 Dallas-area school in the 2014-15 or 2015-16 school year. As with all charter schools, Great Hearts does not charge tuition and is open to all students, with admissions determined through a lottery process.
Please join us on May 9th to show your support and to learn more about our plans to bring Great Hearts to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
