By Great Hearts Academies
In response to increasing demand, representatives of Great Hearts Academies have announced an expansion of its network of nonprofit public charter schools.
Roosevelt Preparatory Academy is slated to open in fall of 2022 in Buckeye, and the doors of an upsized and newly built permanent home for Anthem Preparatory Academy will open for the 2022-23 school year. In addition to the two new builds, Great Hearts is also expanding its current Trivium Preparatory Academy to increase capacity.
The first is the expansion of the current Archway Trivium and Trivium Preparatory Academy. The demand in the West Valley has increased, and to accommodate this growth, Great Hearts will be adding two new sections per grade at Archway Trivium to serve more students, adding new classrooms for Trivium Prep, building an additional multi-purpose room, and readjusting the football field on the current plot of land that Trivium occupies.
Anthem Preparatory Academy’s new two-story design will include a large gym, football/soccer field, lab rooms, special education rooms, library, and more to serve students in grades K-12. The ground-up build will be bigger at approximately 82,000 square feet. Upon completion, Great Hearts will move the students from the current Anthem Prep Academy to its new location on a 10-acre parcel of land on the northeast corner of Gavilan Peak Parkway and Arroyo Norte Drive. The new Anthem site is approximately two miles from the school’s current location.
