Paideia Academy was founded in 2012 by Dr. Brian Winsor to serve the needs of the whole child and support the needs of the whole family. Paideia currently serves kindergarten through eighth grades with plans to eventually build a campus serving grades seven through 12. The Paideia campus also houses Paideia Preschool South Mountain serving little 3 and 4 year old scholars. The Paideia campus also houses the Paideia Family Resource Center offering a wide variety of support to the South Phoenix community families. Paideia Academy provides a whole-child” learning experience – academics, character and leadership, recreation and culture, physical, mental, and emotional health – to empower all scholars to achieve success in college, career, citizenship, and family life. Paideia scholars are immersed in a rigorous academic-intellectual experience of authentic literacy, social studies, and mathematics and scientific inquiry. The Paideia whole-child education teaches our scholars to live, to love, to learn, and go forth to leave a lasting legacy of goodness.
