At Paradigm, we teach our scholars how to think, not what to think. We also encourage scholars to own their education. Owning one’s education involves skills in planning, goal setting, monitoring class status, and engaging in skill levels tailored to the individual. Scholars create a mission plan, a charter element established in our initial charter.
Kedge Time (or “Kedge” for short) is a first period class that offers multiple opportunities to facilitate the charter mission and goals! Last year (2021-22) was our first year of Kedge implementation. With feedback fro mentors and parents, we have made some adjustments to keep goal implementation moving forward. Here are elements of Kedge this coming year (2022-23):
Please lend your support as we work to give our all in mentoring your scholars in their individual journeys guided by our charter mission an goals.
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.
