Paideia School

1509 Ponce De Leon Ave, Atlanta, Georgia, 30307

Paideia is a school of just over 1,000 children ages 3 through 12th grade. Our main campus is in the Druid Hills neighborhood of Atlanta near Emory University with athletic fields in Avondale Estates. We balance challenging academics with a commitment to the arts, athletics, and service learning, a combination we believe inspires students to stretch to new levels of achievement. Each year, Paideia graduates typically attend over 50 different colleges and universities.
The school was founded in 1971 by parents who wanted a personal, creative, and intellectually demanding education for their children. In naming the school they chose an ancient Greek word, “paideia” (pie-DAY-uh), the meaning of which reflects the conscious pursuit of a child’s total education by a community. In addition to advocating intellectual, civic, artistic, and physical development, Paideia seeks to cultivate the development of a child’s ethical self. We strive for racial, cultural, and economic diversity within our student body and work hard to be a place that embraces students and families from all backgrounds. We approach children as individuals and encourage them to be cognizant of their relative strengths, interests, and dispositions. True to our founding values, parents continue to play an integral role in the governance and life of the school.

We encourage you to learn more about Paideia–by talking to teachers, students, and parents involved at our school, by exploring our website, and by asking questions. Of course, the best way to get a sense of the school is to visit during a school day.

We hope to see you soon.
