Great Hearts

About This Project

Great Hearts – a nonprofit network of charter schools established in Arizona in 2007 – was seeking to expand into the Texas area. This would not only involve finding the real estate to accommodate the students but InSite EFS would also need to provide them with a strategic analysis of potential student demographics. Using the demographics to narrow the search would be the key to this project’s success.



Established Charter School operator in Arizona sought growth in Texas, as they saw the need for strategic growth in a new region.



A focused real estate search combined with strategic demographics to find the most ideal location for their facilities.



InSite EFS closed on multiple locations, with each one opening with a stronger initial enrollment and waiting list growth than the last. Our attention to market study and demographic analysis allowed us to find not only the most viable site for the location but also the one that was most conducive to the school’s success. Great Hearts now operates 28 charter schools throughout Arizona and Texas with more schools opening soon.
