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
