Paradigm Math encourages scholars to gain skills to think like mathematicians. At our school, we recognize that all learners are different and need a variety of different methods to understand mathematical concepts. Learn more about the experiences we can provide to help all scholars at our school succeed!

Our philosophy to teach scholars how to think, not what to think, is a big part of our curriculum, even in mathematics! Many of our courses include a final project that connects the concepts learned and apply them in real-life situations.
We have found that teaching conceptual math makes a huge difference in our scholars’ learning. We want our scholars to understand the “why” behind math and this in-depth way of learning gives them the chance to go beyond the numbers. We also offer small class sizes and additional support in math lab classes and after-school math tutoring, which provides more one-on-one opportunities.
No matter what skill level your scholar is at, your scholar can explore the extent of mathematics they choose. If your scholar needs extra support, you can enroll in our elective math credits like our Math Lab or Math for Life courses to provide extra one-on-one tutoring time with our mentors.
Looking for courses that can prepare them for the AP calculus exam or furthering their education at a postsecondary institution? Your scholar can get the benefits from that, too!
While we do require a math placement test when first enrolling, many of our math courses are open to all grade levels as long as they meet the prerequisites and obtain appropriate mentor approval.
Because many of our students choose to opt out of the SAGE test, Paradigm Schools uses the ACT as a benchmark to evaluate our scholars. If you want your child to feel prepared for future education, you can feel confident in the education they receive at Paradigm Schools. No matter where their future takes them, our mentors are trained to help prepare scholars succeed by following our mission.
Scholars transferring into Paradigm Schools are required to take a math placement test, so your child can be placed in the math class that matches your scholar’s comprehension and skill level. This ensures each new scholar’s success to make the transition from one curriculum at another school or homeschooling to our courses as smooth as possible.

You can get an education in how mathematics applies in real life with some of our unique courses! If you want to know how to apply math in everyday situations, consider enrolling your scholar in our Mathematical Decision Making for Life course! Our mentors teach scholars real-life situations where math applies. This course includes instruction in finance, modeling, statistics, and more.
You can view our course catalog to get an overview of what’s included in all of our courses, including our unique Math for Life or Math Lab courses, which we offer specifically for scholars who need a little extra support.

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.
