Great Hearts Harveston: Grades K-8 | K-12 by 2028


Dear Prospective Students, Families, and the East Baton Rouge Community,

Welcome to Great Hearts Harveston, an integral part of the renowned Great Hearts Academies network, and a growing K-12 academy in the heart of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As a tuition-free, public charter school, we are honored to offer a classical education that nurtures young minds from kindergarten through high school, preparing them for both collegiate success and a life rich in virtue.

At Great Hearts Harveston, we believe in the transformative power of a classical liberal arts education. Our curriculum is meticulously crafted to provide an educational journey that transcends the traditional, fostering a deep appreciation for the true, the good, and the beautiful. We are committed to developing well-educated, well-cultivated human beings, guided by the pursuit of human excellence—otherwise known as virtue—in all endeavors.

Our classical approach is rooted in real and meaningful content that traces its roots through the peaks and pitfalls of Western tradition. We are philosophical realists, believing the world to be knowable and that strong character arises from humane rigor and good habits of mind and body. In this, we prepare our students not only for academic success but for the greater pursuit of a virtuous and fulfilling life.

As a tuition-free institution, we are committed to making this exceptional educational experience accessible to all families in Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas. We believe that every child deserves a high-quality education that prepares them for the challenges and opportunities of the future. Our commitment to accessibility and excellence ensures that our doors are open to all who seek a transformative educational journey.

Great Hearts Harveston 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.

We look forward to meeting you and sharing the exceptional experience that Great Hearts Harveston offers. Join us as we continue to shape not only scholars but also virtuous citizens and future leaders of our world.

With warmest regards,

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email
