About our school:

PAIDEIA Cooperative School is a K-12 culture of academic innovation and adaptation preparing students for their futures. This program offers a personalized educational plan inclusive of a traditional home school model with the ability to participate in Anchorage school and community resources to support a passion-driven education. These diversified options include partnering with current ASD resources and programs, seeking out and coordinating business partnerships for internship opportunities, and working as a collaborative community to offer intensives, electives, student-driven projects, and civic opportunities for all students while maintaining a team teaching model that ensures academic standard accountability and a success-driven educational plan.


Our name is an acronym standing for Passionately Accommodating Individual Desires, Enhancing Independent Achievement. The word paideia comes from the Greek and means the whole training and education of children relating to the cultivation of mind and morals. It includes the training of the physical and mental faculties in such a way as to produce a broad, enlightened, and mature outlook harmoniously combined for the maximum cultural development of the student.
