The Paideia School

I recently participated in an activity where we were asked to build a hypothetical house out of our education experiences. I realized that Paideia truly built the foundation of my house. While I only attended Paideia for high school, that does not diminish my Paideia experience.

Whenever people learn I attended Paideia, they always want to know how we’re able to learn so much and succeed beyond Paideia when we’re given so much freedom as students. They know that there is something special and unique about a Paideia education. Sometimes I joke that I was a “wall person,” but then I am reminded that that freedom allowed me to take three languages during high school thanks to short term classes, participate in musicals, teach elementary science, and academically explore Harry Potter when Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was first released – yes, I am that many years old! I cherish these experiences and have used them in every level of the house I have built with my education over the years.

Don’t you think that all kids should have the opportunity to attend Paideia and to build a foundation of their own? Here’s where I need your support – we must sustain Paideia for current and future students. Your gift to the Alumni Fund goes directly to financial aid, giving more students access to the incredible education we each received.
