To better serve more families, Paideia Academies is now offering K-8 remote learning through Paideia Virtual Academy. Our online school focuses on providing the same guiding principles as our brick and mortar school that has empowered scholars since 2012.
Our K-8 virtual academy focuses on building a strong foundation for character development while providing a quality education and instilling important life skills to ensure our scholars are prepared for future success.

Paideia focuses on developing scholars’ foundation for a bright future. We commit to providing high-quality education that develops a well-rounded scholar with lifelong skills. Scholars are empowered with the rich project-based curriculum while they develop foundations for future success. Through careful character development, scholars are empowered to think critically, exemplify creative problem-solving skills, find and use their own voice, and take ownership to solve problems. Paideia Virtual Academy is a tuition-free, high-quality online education designed to develop the whole child -- body, mind, heart and spirit – serving students and communities throughout the United States.
Each Paideia Virtual Academy scholar is provided with a Leadership Coach. The Leadership Coach is a highly trained and experienced teacher in the Leader In Me program at Paideia. The Leadership Coach will provide your scholar with weekly lessons and activities from “The Leader In Me” program, which is based on the world-renowned principles of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Your scholar will routinely meet remotely with the Leadership Coach along with up to five other similar aged scholars. During these short meetings, the Leadership Coach will guide the scholars in implementing the Leader In Me lessons in their daily lives. The Leadership Coach is also available to coach parents in implementing the Leader In Me and 7 Habits of Highly Effective People in their daily home life.
The Paideia Scholar Support Specialist provides whole-person support for your scholar. The Support Specialist reviews your scholar’s academic progress through the online portal and communicates with the academic teacher, Leadership Coach, and parents if the scholar begins to fall behind academically. Along with watching over the scholar’s academic progress, the Scholar Support Specialist works closely with the Leadership Coach on any signs of emotional stress a scholar might exhibit. The Scholar Support Specialist adds an added layer of coaching support to any scholars demonstrating signs of mental/emotional stress. In some cases, the Scholar Support Specialist will consult with the School Social Worker to assist a scholar and family.
The Paideia School Social worker provides a wide range of support and services for the Paideia community of learners and families. By counseling together with your scholar’s Leadership Coach and Scholar Support Specialist, the School Social Worker can meet with parents to discover any deeper challenges a scholar may be experiencing. The School Social Worker then works together with the team to assist the parents and family in creating healthy home environments of love and learning.
At Paideia Virtual Academy, the scholar is not left alone in a “touchless internet void.” Each scholar is provided with the whole-child support needed to ensure each scholar’s success and development.
