At the heart of our school and its culture is the heart of Christ and the teaching of God’s Word. This means our students receive more than academics. They receive the joy and salvation brought by leading a Christ-centered life.

Paideia Academy is first and foremost a Christian school with Christ and the Bible at its center. The Bible teaches that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge. We believe, therefore, that every aspect of a child’s education needs to be intentionally grounded in the historic Christian faith.

Rather than confining Christianity to one Bible class, we believe that a Christian school should view every subject through the lens of Scripture. Through this intellectual and spiritual integration, our students develop a comprehensive Christian worldview.

Our children are taught how to love God with all their hearts, souls, minds, and strength and to love their neighbor as themselves. They learn it by the example set by our teachers, administrators, and staff who work every day to model Christian truth and virtue in all that they do.

Tim, Upper School Teacher
The students at Paideia Academy are solid Christian young people who show much evidence of growing in their walk with the Lord and moving toward intellectual, aesthetic, and spiritual maturity.
