K-12 EDUCATION FOCUSED ON THE WHOLE PERSON – BODY, MIND, HEART, SPIRIT

Through our years of experience in education, we heard the cries from within children: “Treat me fairly, treat me kindly, cultivate my creativity and inspire me.” We’ve created a culture that answers that longing. Furthermore, we’ve found that children are eager to learn, grow, explore, master and take on responsibility. Contrary to what some believe, they don’t need to be motivated, controlled, coerced, badgered, bribed or cajoled.

That’s why the foundational understanding that children are four dimensional – body, mind, heart and spirit – is integrated into everything we do. Our whole-person approach fosters the development of each dimension, inspiring children to understand their needs, skills and strengths. At the same time, they are discovering their passion, forming a guiding vision, learning how to tune into their conscience, and cultivating self-discipline.

Our unique approach is having a profound, positive impact. Scholars discover their depth, perseverance and resilience. And as your child finds their own voice and confidence, they develop healthy inquiring minds, capable of finding solutions.

We nurture our scholars to gain self-awareness, understand social sensitivity, and ultimately hear their own soul’s calling. They can then distinguish their own road map to life, step into leadership, and assist others in finding their own voice. Children are engaged in body, mind, heart and spirit, so they can be challenged academically, expand their character, and make lasting connections – ensuring their success now and in the future.

OUR MISSION

Paideia Academies utilize a family centric model to enlist the support of families in the education and upbringing of the whole child - academic & intellectual, recreational & cultural, character & leadership, emotional, physical, & mental health - to empower students to achieve success in college, career, citizenship, and family life.

THE WHOLE PERSON PARADIGM OF PAIDEIA ACADEMIES

We educate what we call “The Whole Child – Body, Mind, Heart, Spirit.“ To better understand the four dimensions of Paideia’s Whole Person Paradigm, we invite you to mindfully study the below table and consider the impact of each section on your young scholar. As you embrace these concepts, you will likely find your own paradigm changing to become a whole-child parent, teacher and leader.

If you want to learn more about the whole-person paradigm, we invite you to study Steven Covey’s book, “The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness.”
