The leading architecture, planning and design firm, Studio Ma, has announced the completion of a new $17 million campus for Great Hearts Academies in North Phoenix. Two existing academies are now located on the new campus: Archway North Phoenix and North Phoenix Preparatory, serving approximately 1,300 students since it opened on August 10th, and ultimately 1,600 students at full capacity, in grades K-12.
The new campus represents another step forward for Great Hearts Academies, expanding access for students to benefit from the organization’s mission of providing tuition-free public charter schools focused on a classical, liberal arts curriculum. Students of the two academies will meet and study in modern classrooms, including science labs, art studios, and music rooms. The campus facilities boast an 18,800-square-foot gymnasium with a split basketball-volleyball court, locker rooms, and a football field.
The architect for the project, Studio Ma — recent recipient of the Firm of the Year Award from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Arizona Chapter — worked closely with Adolfson & Peterson Construction and owner’s representative Nations Group to see the project to completion.
