A Better Chance Applicants

Since 1988, Paideia has maintained its partnership as a member school with A Better Chance, a school referral service noted for its success in identifying, recruiting, and developing the leadership ability of students of color. We encourage applicants from A Better Chance to learn about our school by exploring this website and attending our admissions meetings and visiting programs beginning in October.

At this point, we encourage students to create an account with Ravenna, our admissions software provider, and sign up for a tour or visit. Please register as soon as possible because these appointments often fill up.

When applying to Paideia as an A Better Chance referral, choose the A Better Chance Application Type in Ravenna. This application type will give you access to an abbreviated application to complete and submit to Paideia School. There is no Paideia School application fee for applicants referred to us by A Better Chance. The Paideia School application includes the following components:

  • Submit Shared Applicant Information Form
  • Submit Paideia Parent Application
  • Submit Parent Involvement Form
  • Submit Student Application  (7th - 12th grade applicants only)
  • Submit Graded Assignment (9th - 12th grade applicants only)
  • Register: Student Interview
  • Parent Interview: you can expect to be contacted by one of our parent volunteers to schedule a conversation

If you have questions about applying to Paideia School through the A Better Chance program, please contact JoJo Cadray, Associate Director of Admissions (cadray.jojo@paideiaschool.org; 404/270-2381).
