Among Paideia’s founding principles is the belief that schools can be informal and individualized, yet still educate well. We believe that a quality education acknowledges the innate curiosity of children and their desire to understand and master their environment. We understand that children have different interests and learning styles and may progress at different rates. Our school is committed to having a racial, cultural, and socioeconomic cross-section of students. We consider applications for admission without regard to race, religion, ethnic group, or sexual orientation; we welcome all applicants. Our admissions decisions give consideration to this commitment while also making every attempt to achieve a reasonably balanced age and gender distribution.
