It is the tradition of Great Hearts and Archway Arete to inspire students to develop a personal library of literary classics they can keep, annotate and return to throughout their academic careers. Therefore, we encourage parents to purchase these Classics to Keep so that your student may graduate with an impressive library of literary masterpieces. However, for families that do not wish to purchase these texts, students will be given access to an academy copy to be used as a part of the curriculum. Students should not mark in the books provided by Archway Arete and should be returned once classwork is finished.

“Classics to Keep” are available from Amazon or any book seller of your choice. If you would like to purchase these texts elsewhere, please use the list of titles and ISBN below.  This will allow all students to use the same book aligning the page and text with the class and curriculum.
