Support Paideia Academy

We need YOU to help us grow...

There are many ways you can help us grow in our mission to be a leader in classical Christian education in our region, and to cultivate godly young men and women who love God and love learning.

This page lists ways to partner with us through financial giving, but we also deeply need your prayers and involvement.

Your support has incredible impact! We appreciate your continued commitment.

For support-related questions, please contact Advancement Director, Doug Carr.

You can support us in many ways:

  • Pray regularly for our school, students, teachers, and leadership
  • Attend parent meetings and parent/teacher conferences
  • Participate in school-wide events
  • Volunteer to serve with your time and talents (see below)
  • Share your story with prospective families


The Annual Fund is called “annual” because we need your continued assistance each and every year to enrich Paideia Academy’s programs both inside and outside the classroom.

100% participation is our goal.

Our goal is 100% participation from our school families, faculty, staff, and leadership. Every gift, no matter how large or small, is important. We hope you’ll plan to join us for the Annual Banquet to celebrate our progress and learn how you can support our mission.

Bridge Fund

In Acts 2:42-47, we are reminded of the fellowship of believers:

“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.”

It is a testament to God working in the life of a community of believers when givers give, even in a time when we have to do community differently.

Ecclesiastes 3:5 “(There’s) a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing”.

Though we long for the time when we can “embrace” together, we can still carry one another’s burdens. One way to do this is by making a tax-deductible gift to the Paideia Academy Bridge Fund. The specific purpose of this fund is to assist our families struggling with job loss. These funds will “bridge” tuition expenses for families in need. The Bridge Fund will only ever be used for people who have lost their jobs, not for any other purpose.

Our desire is for families to keep their children enrolled in Paideia should one of our own have this type of need. What a wonderful way to love your neighbor! Will you join us in a “time of embracing” by making a tax deductible gift designated to this fund?


Parent volunteers are the lifeblood of our school. There are so many ways to serve. Room moms, photography, event planning, hospitality, PE & Art class assistants, field trip drivers, and everything in between. There is a place for you!
