About Paideia Academy


Mark Hamilton, Headmaster

I understand that finding the right educational experience for your student is one of the most important parenting decisions you will make. Our mission at Paideia Academy is to assist you in your duty to bring up your child in the training and admonition of the Lord by providing an academic instruction that is distinctly Christ-centered and classical in a challenging and nurturing environment.

Our website should provide you with the information you need to begin choosing an educational partner for your family. Seeing our mission come alive in the classrooms is the next step. To set up your school visit, you may submit an inquiry form or call our office at 865-670-0440.

I look forward to meeting you in person to answer any questions you might have and to show you the difference a classical and Christ-centered education can make in the life of your child.


Since 2004, Paideia Academy has experienced steady growth and success in equipping servant leaders who love God and love learning.

Hannah, Class of 2015
"I have made amazing friendships with both classmates and teachers; I have undergone fruitful academic challenges; and most importantly, I have learned that God is in the center of it all. Whether it be on the soccer field, in the classroom, or at the lunch table, God is woven in the midst of everything."
