The Paideia School

Campus Life

High school kids

Above all else, a good school should be a good place for people to be. It should exemplify qualities of human interaction that we would wish for people everywhere. One should feel valued. A great many interesting things should be going on. One should be learning a lot—and especially learning how better to learn.

Dr. Newt Hodgson, Paideia Self Study


The meaning of the ancient Greek word paideia has changed throughout the centuries so that it has no literal translation. We understand the word to mean the total education and development of children intentionally guided by a community. Paideia is a busy place inside and outside the classrooms. Campus Life reflects our commitment to developing a community of life long learners.
