Welcome to Great Hearts Gala

As charter schools Great Hearts academies receive $1,500 less per student annually in public funding compared to district schools, which means less money for teachers and programs. With your help, we can educate more great-hearted leaders who are prepared for the 21st Century.

Funds raised at the Gala will help us address the critical need for more high-quality teachers in Arizona and will help provide professional development programs for over 1,000 teachers throughout the Valley. Professional development initiatives include:

Master’s Degree in Classical Education. Enroll teachers in a first-of-its-kind program to become the very best in their craft— while staying in the classroom

Comprehensive Training. Provide new and returning teachers with 2 weeks of comprehensive training in the Great Hearts vision, classroom management, and subject-specific teaching practices

Headmaster College. Graduate the first cohort of the Headmaster College, producing leaders with the personal integrity, managerial effectiveness, and organizational leadership necessary for serving as a purpose-driven school headmaster

Lesson Library. Stipend master teachers to record model lessons for the benefit of other teachers throughout the network — “Watch the best in action”

Guest Speakers. Host elite professors from around the county to provide workshops to teachers on the latest research and practices in their field of study

Summer Enrichment for Teachers. Sponsor a teacher to attend a summer conference related to their subject area as part of their ongoing learning and development

The focus of our sponsorship benefits is not only to make a lasting impact in the lives of children and the community, but for our partners to leverage gifting and marketing dollars for maximum benefit.
