Paideia Academy

From the Greek word meaning “the upbringing of a child,” the goal of the Paideia (Py-day-a) program is to provide a rigorous liberal arts education that allows students to develop the skills necessary for the duties of citizenship in a democracy.  By teaching self-development and continued life-long learning and supporting students to utilize every opportunity for personal development in society, students develop the skills necessary to think and act critically as responsible citizens of the nation and the world.
