Paideia Morning Assembly – Character, Leadership, and Patriotism

One of the most important parts of the day for a Paideia student is morning assembly. This assembly is completely led by Paideia scholar leaders.

Each morning all students line up with their teachers to recite the WINGS of Paideia charge:

“We are Wise – We are Intelligent – We are Noble – We are Generous – We are Strong

We are the Wings of Paideia!”

and the Paideia Student Mission:

“I am a Paideia Scholar:

I am proactive by taking responsibility for my life and making good choices.

I begin with the end in mind by defining my mission and goals in life.

I put first things first by spending my time on things that matter most.

I have a win/win attitude by seeking solutions where everyone can win.

I seek first to understand, then to be understood by listening to other people’s ideas and feelings.

I synergize by working together to achieve more.

I sharpen the saw by regularly renewing my mind, heart, body, and spirit.

As a Paideia scholar I am here to live, to love, to learn, and to leave a legacy.

I am a Paideia scholar!”

The students then sing a patriotic song, and pledge allegiance to the flag.

After this, to the sound of classical music the students walk to their classes quietly and orderly.

In this way we are establishing a culture of highly motivated, morally based, patriotic students.

We begin each day ready to learn in the “whole-child” method of Paideia!

We are... → I will... → Paideia Patriotism →
