Founded on the pillars of wisdom, virtue, and relevance, our vision is to support families in educating their students by providing a classical, liberal arts education that is founded in leadership and free thinking. We inspire learning through a constructive environment, mentorship, thoughtful discussion, and service. The Paradigm program enables scholars to develop critical thinking skills as they apply the ideas of classic works to their own lives and modern society as a whole.
We want all our scholars to benefit from a Paradigm education, including our homeschool families. We remain homeschool friendly and offer flexibility to all our Paradigm families. We’ll do our best to cater to any idea you may have.

At Paradigm Schools, students are referred to as scholars and teachers are known as mentors. Scholars "own" their education while being supported every step of the way with thoughtful mentors. If your child has specific needs and learning styles, see how Paradigm may be the right choice for your scholar.LEARN MORE
Using classic literature and materials, our scholars are taught how to facilitate deep conversation by using past concepts that currently shape the future. This guides our mindset in teaching scholars "how" to think, not "what" to think. Experience the Paradigm Schools difference in learning.LEARN MORE

The Paradigm Trivium is a traditional liberal arts approach adapted for the modern era. We want our scholars to learn facts and data, but our curriculum isn’t just about memorizing information. Paradigm scholars learn how to apply their skills and knowledge to real life situations.
We believe in an absolute truth. The aim of education is to discover Truth so that we can be truly free. The role of a Mentor at Paradigm is to guide scholars to discover Truth.
Our growth model reflects the classic texts that each grade reads and how those works reflect our “Know, Do, Be” philosophy. This approach teaches our scholars to find themselves, explore the idea of captivity, and learn what freedom truly means a human being and as a society.
I love Paradigm. My children have never been happier, and have found a love of learning that was missing in their previous education!Julia H.
I went to Paradigm all through high school. Best experience ever. Not only did it help me focus on my strengths, but it also prepared me for college with its challenging curriculum that makes you think outside the box. The mentors there care about each of their students individually, and want nothing more than the students’ success.Jennifer L.
In Fall 2019, Paradigm Schools became the first public school in the state of Utah to offer virtual and augmented reality technology to scholars. Headset devices are used to enhance learning opportunities for our scholars, allowing them to explore virtual places around the world, on another planet, or during a completely different time period. Whether it’s visiting the surface of Mars or exploring the Pyramids of Giza, this is a completely immersive learning experience.
