Paideia Academy's mission is to challenge, nurture, and prepare its students. We believe that athletics are an ideal complement to academics in the overall educational experience. We seek to promote excellence and godly character in the classroom and on the field.

Participation in athletics provides a good opportunity to encourage Christian students in their relationship with Jesus Christ. In the rigor of practice and under the pressure of competition, Christ-like qualities can be fashioned, demonstrated, and tested.  Athletic events also enhance the atmosphere of the Paideia community, providing students and parents the opportunity to fellowship and express positive school spirit. Good sportsmanship is the objective of all our Knights teams.
