Paradigm Seminar Classes are specially designed to provide a classical, liberal arts, leadership education. Seminar Classes in the high school are unique in that they are held for two consecutive class periods (3 hours total) every other day. In the prep school, they are held every day for shorter time. During Seminar time, scholars receive instruction and participate in discussions about the classic books they are reading together. Because we value the liberal arts experience, all Paradigm Scholars are required to be enrolled in a Seminar class. The classes are multi-disciplinary in nature and offer multiple credits per year. Seminar classes are headed by a lead Mentor who coordinates with a team of other certified teachers to provide scholars credits which meet the Utah State Standards.
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.
