A School Built on a Solid Foundation…

We started with the idea – whole child education – that we could make a difference in a few children’s lives. We implemented to the best of our ability the tenets of a whole-child education striving to learn how to address the whole child – body, mind, heart and spirit. We watched as the principles we taught and the techniques we used made a difference in the education and daily lives of the children and families we were working with. Was there a way to expand our reach? Was there a way to make a bigger impact? Can we actually function in a broken US educational system hyper-focused on testing our children to death and focus on developing the whole child – body, mind- heart and spirit After 5 years the answer is a resounding, “YES!”  Thank you, Paideia scholars, teachers, staff and families!
