College Counseling

Great Hearts is committed to an individualized approach to college counseling that focuses on finding the best fit for each student. The emphasis of the program is on helping students discover who they are as scholars and emerging adults. Throughout their years at Great Hearts Monte Vista, our students learn to be comfortable in the worlds of both ideas and practicality, understanding the relationship between the two. This serves our students particularly well when making post-secondary plans.

Great Hearts Monte Vista is proud to have graduated our inaugural class of 2018!
Graduates from the Class of 2018 are pursuing their post-secondary education in eight states and were collectively awarded nearly $3,000,000 in merit scholarships.
