From Paideia Academy

Are you looking for a Christian school where God is honored and your values are shared?
Paideia Academy offers exceptional academics rooted in a Christ-centered worldview. In other words, Christianity is not limited to chapel or a Bible class. It is integrated with a time-tested liberal arts curriculum that educates the whole child to love God and love learning.
Paideia’s intentionally small classes allow for strong student teacher relationships. Therefore, teachers can truly get to know your child well. They can tailor instruction that will meet the needs of both the group and the individual. Teachers don’t teach to a test. Instead they teach to the hearts and minds of those in their care.
This close-knit community also fosters servant leadership. With Pre-K to seniors on the same campus, older students are able to mentor younger students. And all students are given opportunities to serve on campus and in the community to share the love of Christ they are learning with others.

    Paideia is the only classical Chrian school in Knoxville, so it was our clear choice. We wanted a school with Christian worldview and culture and strong academics. It has surpassed our expectations! Our children are growing in their faith and learning to think critically, reason, and write and speak well. Our oldest is a graduate and says that Paideia prepared him so well for college. We highly recommend this school!

    Paideia Academy has been everything we hoped it would be when we started our daughter there in Kindergarten. We have been amazed by the high standards that are set for her, as well as the loving care she receives at the same time. We are truly blessed by this school and would encourage anyone to visit. We are so excited for our other children to begin their time at Paideia!
    Our son has attended Paideia since Kindegarten, and I stand amazed at the young man he is becoming. He is in eighth grade now and as most parents know that middle school years are very difficult. My personal experience with the teachers and staff during this trying time has been outstanding! I've received more support from the teachers, staff and even the other students!! They truly do raise up disciples and are strengthen the kingdom of God! They don't only care for the students, but they care the parents as well. Evrytime I've needed the support, I have saught the support of the teachers and staff and have never been let down! Communication is always open and welcome! The academics are rigorously difficult but the students are better for it. No school is perfect, not even Paideia, but they are constantly working to make themselves better. God has this school in His hands and those that are there know it's where they're suppose to be.
