It’s time to re-enroll your child for the 2024-2025 school year. Please login and confirm your child's intent to return for the upcoming school year by electronically submitting re-enrollment information as soon as possible. We ask for your quick response, as it allows us to keep an accurate count of available seats for the Fall. The deadline is March 31st - don't wait!

NOTE: Re-enrollment will be managed through our new Power School Parent Portal that was launched in January. In preparation for Re-Enrollment, please ensure that you can log into the parent portal using the instructions you received on January 3rd. If you have any issues logging in, please reach out to our Upper School Registrar Melissa White

Community Investment

Re-enrollment runs through March and as you prepare for next school year, we ask that you consider scheduling a monthly or lump-sum donation to the 2024-2025 Community Investment Campaign.


Please also be mindful, if you have a new student joining us in the 2024-25 school year and can increase your contributions to CI, it is a huge help to our school.


As a charter school, we depend on our families’ financial support each year. Scheduling monthly donations is the best way to break up your charitable giving into affordable installments. Click here to schedule monthly contributions! Please contact DeAnna Macias with any questions.


You can always access full team schedules on our Athletic Website

Advocacy Matters!

Election Day Results: Voters cast ballots across the state in Super Tuesday’s primary elections. Many pro-charter candidates were successful in their primaries! For a full list of statewide March 5 election results, check out this article from the Texas Tribune - Texas election results for president, senate, Congress and more | The Texas Tribune

 Stay in the Know:  The Texas Public Charter School Association (TPCSA) is our statewide organization representing all Texas charter schools. They are working to ensure that those who have benefited most from charter schools have the opportunity to share their experiences with legislators and make their voices heard. Great Hearts works closely with them to protect educational choice as an option for our families. Please consider signing up to receive TPCSA’s emails, updates, and action alerts to participate in their important grassroots efforts by clicking this link.
