Welcome to Great Hearts Archway Chandler, Serving Grades K-5

Dear Prospective Families and Esteemed Members of the East Valley Community, 

Welcome to Archway Chandler, an esteemed member of the Great Hearts Academies, proudly situated in the vibrant community of Chandler, Arizona. As a tuition-free, public charter school, we are dedicated to providing a premier classical liberal arts education to elementary school students, from kindergarten through fifth grade. Our academy is committed to laying a robust foundation for academic excellence and virtuous character, preparing students for a seamless transition to a Great Hearts middle school. 

At Archway Chandler, we believe that education is a transformative journey that shapes both the intellect and the character of our young scholars. We offer a rigorous, content-rich curriculum that is infused with the classical traditions of Western Civilization. Our educational approach is designed to develop each student’s academic potential while cultivating moral virtues, fostering a lifelong love for learning, and a deep appreciation for the cultural heritage that forms the cornerstone of our curriculum. 

Our students are provided with a durable foundation in essential academic subjects, including reading, writing, arithmetic, geometry, science, and history. This comprehensive approach to education ensures that our students are not only academically proficient but also well-rounded in their knowledge and skills. Additionally, our curriculum is enriched with meaningful and substantive work in Spanish, fine arts, physical education, and competitive chess, offering a well-balanced and engaging educational experience. 

Located on 1951 N. Alma School Rd., the Chandler campus of Archway Classical shares its location with Chandler Preparatory Academy but maintains its distinct identity. Our campus is uniquely tailored to the needs of our elementary students, with a separate entrance, administration, and student area, ensuring a nurturing and focused learning environment. 

The mission of Archway Chandler extends beyond academic development. We are devoted to shaping the virtuous character of each student. Our commitment to classical education places a special emphasis on the cultural heritage of Western Civilization, fostering an environment where students are encouraged to explore, question, and understand the profound ideas that have shaped our world. This approach cultivates not only knowledgeable students but also thoughtful, ethical, and responsible individuals. 

Our talented and passionate faculty are at the heart of our community. They are not merely educators; they are mentors dedicated to inspiring a love of learning and a commitment to excellence in our students. Their expertise in classical education and their dedication to student success create a dynamic and supportive atmosphere that encourages curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking. 

As part of the East Valley community, Archway Chandler benefits from the rich cultural and educational resources of the area. This vibrant setting enhances our students’ learning experiences, providing them with opportunities to engage with a diverse and dynamic community. Our inclusive and respectful school environment mirrors the values of our surrounding community, fostering a sense of belonging and mutual respect among our students. 

Archway Chandler is committed to making classical education accessible to all families. As a tuition-free institution, we ensure that families from varied backgrounds have the opportunity to provide their children with a high-quality education that prepares them for future academic and personal success. Our commitment to accessibility and inclusivity is fundamental to our philosophy and mission. 

We warmly invite you to explore Archway Chandler, to discover the depth of our classical curriculum, and to experience the vibrant life of our school community. We encourage you to visit our campus, meet our dedicated educators, and witness firsthand the unique atmosphere that makes our school a special place for learning and growth. 

Archway Chandler is more than just a school; it is a community where intellectual curiosity, moral virtue, and academic excellence are nurtured and celebrated. We are excited about the possibility of welcoming you to our family and embarking together on this enriching educational journey.
