The Paideia Program advocates that all learners are engaging in the critical thinking, literacy skills, and attitudes necessary to earn a living, be an active citizen, and live a meaningful life in the 21st century.

Paideia is active learning—fostering critical and creative thinking through Socratic seminar, intellectual coaching, and mastery of information.

Paideia is high quality education for all—preparing children of all backgrounds, in public and private schools, to live up to their potential.

Paideia is preparation for a full life—teaching essential skills so students can earn a good living, contribute to our democracy, and pursue happiness.
