Welcome to Paideia Academy!

December 2011


Paideia is a tuition-free public charter school, offering year-round education to the southern suburbs of Minneapolis/St. Paul.  Pronounced Pi-day-ah, the name of our school means "education of a child" in the fullest sense.  More than that, it means an opportunity for parents and teachers to have a real partnership in the learning process.  Think of it as public school with a private school feeling.

Opened in 2005, Paideia Academy serves grades K-8.

      • A fresh approach to K-8
      • The right academic standards - High.
      • The right size - Small.
      • The right learning environment - Secure.
      • The right school board - Self-governing.
