At Paradigm, Seniors must complete a 10 page thesis paper as a graduation requirement and defend that thesis in an Oral Exam before a panel of mentors and scholars. From the mountain of papers, mentors (led by the senior seminar mentors) select each year the papers that stood out as being of the highest quality. The criteria? If we had to publish for the world to see Paradigm’s best work, which senior paper would represent us the best? Some years, we may have one or two, other years we may not have any, but when selected, these senior thesis papers will be inducted into the Paradigm Fellowship Gallery and will be published and included in our school library for future scholars to access and learn from.

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.
