Our Legacy Paideia

LPA was founded on the core idea that a strong community and school are based on the contribution of students, parents, teachers, and administrators. From the ancient Greeks, paideia (pronounced pie - day - a) means the culture of a community where each individual is a contributing member of society.


pai·deia; pīˈdāə/; noun: paideia. 

  1. (in ancient Greece) education or upbringing.
  2. the culture of a society.
LPA provides quality education to each child and supports a moral education. As part of this education, LPA created a Paideia to shape a common culture promoting self-awareness, personal accountability, and a code of cultural conduct.
The LPA Paideia is based upon common sense principles, commitments, and acknowledgments which empower each child to learn in a safe, positive, and respectful environment. Administrators and faculty subscribe to this Paideia and recognize that an intentional culture must be fostered to inspire classical education.
