The Paideia School

Student Clubs


There are enough extracurricular activities at Paideia for a school four times its size, too many for one person to do. This enables everyone’s interests to find a home. Students run most of the clubs or special interest groups. Teachers mentor students on forming and running an organization, which is one of the ways to develop leadership and active participation. Some of the names and themes of student organizations vary from year to year based on student interest.
