Welcome to Paradigm Schools

Are you ready to have a paradigm shift? At Paradigm Schools, our goal is to create scholars, not just teach students. We do this by teaching our scholars how to think, not just what to think, so they can be ready to participate in academia as thought leaders rather than followers.

Learning happens best when it is self-led, which is why our schools offer multiple modes of learning and a multidisciplinary approach to cater to each individual scholar. We want your scholar to learn in the way that is best for them, not anybody else.

The Paradigm Schools Difference

We want our scholars to be able to follow in the footsteps of great scientists, artists, and thinkers as they gain the knowledge they need to make their mark as contributing members of society. We create a unique, higher-level learning experience for our scholars in a number of ways:

  • Curriculum of original works: Paradigm has created a strong curriculum of original works, primary source documents, and classic books (we don’t utilize textbooks).
  • Small class sizes: Class sizes of around 20 pupils allow for a more personalized learning experience for scholars and helps make sure no one slips through the cracks.
  • Individualized, Scholar-Led Learning: Everyone learns differently. That’s why we offer multiple modes of learning and encourage scholars to choose projects, models, and labs that work for them.
  • Mentoring: Plato had Socrates and our scholars have the help and mentoring of their teachers, often in a one-on-one setting. That’s why we refer to teachers at Paradigm Schools as mentors.

By fostering an environment where individuals can thrive and unlock their unique potential, we hope to fulfill our mission statement: to create servant-leaders who read and think deeply, write concisely, speak profoundly, and advance the principles of freedom while fulfilling their personal missions with integrity.

  • 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.
