Why Paragon Charter Academy?

Founded on academic excellence, moral focus, parental partnership, and student responsibility, Paragon Charter Academy is a school like no other – one that can lead to a lifetime of success. We set high standards, focus on real-world skills, problem solving, and how to be a good citizen. Our exceptional teachers meet students at their ability level and challenge them to go beyond. Our students also draft a social contract that reinforces their commitment to their school, their teacher, and each other.

"The staff from the principal to the deans to teachers to the office are clearly committed to the success of EACH student...If something is not working, it's a team effort to find a solution!" - Paragon Charter Academy Parent
Top Reasons Parents Send Their Children To Our School: *
1 School safety is a top priority.
2 Children receive individual attention and instruction.
3 The curriculum provides moral focus as well as academics.
* Based on actual 2013 surveys administered to parents of kids who were returning to Paragon Charter Academy

Our students did it again! They surpassed their school-wide reading goal of 325,000 minutes for the month of March - they actually read 428,037 minutes!!! This means they were able to send Mr. Kriesch on the promised deep sea dive. However, when he went outside to look for his limo, he instead found a seat in a dunk tank! K-1 Dean, Mrs. Koval, also went for a swim as her hallway surpassed their goal by reading 108,067 minutes (goal of 79,200) and 2-4 Dean, Mrs. Clark, experienced the dunk tank as her hallway read 190,781 minutes (goal of 99,000 min.)! Our quarter race earned $345.86 and was matched by Scholastic to donate $691.72 to schools in need. Ms. Okarski's class won the popcorn party. We also gave away two bikes and a tablet during today's assembly. What a way to send everyone off on spring break. Stay safe and we will see you all on April 6th.
Save the Date - Our 2nd annual 2.6 mile Salmon Fun Run/Walk is scheduled for Saturday, June 13th at Cascades Park. All proceeds will help raise funds for Salmon In The Classroom. Registration and volunteer forms will be sent home in the near future. Questions? Contact Mrs. Bullock at .
