SUPPLY LISTS

The supply list describes general and grade-specific supplies, teachers might request additional supplies.  View and print the lists

CLASSICS TO KEEP:
Your child’s class will utilize classic works of literature during the upcoming school year.  At Great Hearts Academies, it has always been the tradition for students to develop a personal library of books that they mark in, keep and return to during their time at Great Hearts, and treasure for years to come. We call these books “Classics to Keep.” Your child’s class will utilize these classics during the upcoming school year. Parents and students are strongly encouraged to purchase these books for their own personal collections, so that they can mark them and keep them, allowing students to develop their own impressive personal library of classics over the course of their academic career with Great Hearts. For families who do not purchase the texts, their student will be given access to a copy of these books as part of their curriculum. Students should not mark in Great Hearts provided books   and will be asked to return the books in good condition once their class has finished with the book.

For parents who choose to purchase the book lists, please make sure you acquire the exact ISBN on the list. This is most important when the students are reading texts translated from another language into English.
