What is Paideia?
The Greek term “Paideia” (pie-dee-uh) comes from the writings of Mortimer Adler. The word translates as referring to the positive and mature development of the total person: intellectually, emotionally and physically. It is the philosophy and focus of our instructional program.
The Twelve Principles of Paideia
- Establish an orderly and purposeful environment
- Home and community involvement and support
- Parents, teachers and students work together
- Collective responsibility for student learning
- High standards for student learning
- Curriculum alignment to standards
- College-preparatory curriculum
- Maximum instructional time
- Ongoing staff development
- Instructional leadership
- Collegial cooperation
- Common goals
