Padua Academy has done an outstanding job of transforming girls into confident, faith based young women, who are well prepared for the rigors of college life. From day one as a Freshman, Padua starts the college process in their students by instilling the three S's, which are, Scholarship, Sisterhood and Service. The girls are both guided and challenged throughout their 4 years; academically and through the actions of their faith by the initiation of community service, and various service projects that extend beyond the boarders of the United States. Padua Academy also provides international student studies, which allows for a multicultural and global diversity of learning both in and out of the classroom. Although Padua Academy is a little bit of a financial sacrifice from a parent prospective. The end result you will see in your dauther, is priceless!
Review Padua Academy
Padua has a lot of different clubs. We have clubs to accommodate everyone! Just a short list include, cyber security, sports, band/orchestra, theater, student council, partners in science, and many volunteer clubs such as Ronald's Rescue, Project Unify, and Blue Gold. Administration really supports these activities. Some of them require missing a class period but if you email your teacher before hand they have no trouble helping you make up your work! Most of our varisity sports require a lot of commitment! Our soccer, track & field, and volleyball teams are very good! But our other clubs are also very prestige! Our sober security club just won for the second time in a row, and to celebrate, the mayor of Delaware came to help the community honor these girls achievement! I wouldn't say that we have a most popular extracurricular. The Padua community is very diverse and there is an activity to accommodate everyone!
Padua's teaching staff is fantastic! Every teacher cares about how their student is doing. Each teacher is available during the school day for 40 minutes of what we call "flex", when you go and see them for extra help. All my teachers are very passionate in what they teach. We have a school email network which allows teachers to communicate before school if something has changed, or even during a snow day so we can do our work for that day. The teachers at Padua are one thing I love and in my personal opinion better than any public school in Delaware. Each teacher cares about their students, gives valuable life lessons, and are very intelligent. My favorite thing about my teachers is that they have helped shape me for who I am by pushing me to perform my best, giving me life lessons, and being a great support system and understanding the struggles of a high school student.
