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.
