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 provide a safe learning environment and our exceptional teachers individualize instruction based on your child’s needs. In addition, we focus on real-world skills and how to be a good person. 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

Coins for Compassion - Thank you to everyone who donated their change to be shared with the United Way to help our Michigan neighbors in Flint. Total amount raised was $1,302.93. Way to go Paragon!
Jump Rope for Heart - As of today, students have raised over $3,010.00! Our goal for this year was $2,500.00. That $3,010.00 only includes online donations. The total will be much higher once all of the cash donations are also added. We will provide you with a final total in the near future, but wanted to let families know what a successful week we have had in gym class! Thank you so much for your generous donations for such a worthy cause.
