The Greek word paideia refers to learning from all sources. At PVPA “Paideia” refers to a three-week intersession offering students in all grades opportunities for learning experiences outside the typical routines of school. Students and teachers develop Paideia programs where students investigate a scholarly and artistic topic. Paideia encourages students to make connections within their community and facilitate personal growth and development.
Students select one or two programs of study from a variety of choices. For each year that a student attends PVPA, successful completion of a Paideia is a credit requirement. Students must successfully complete the Paideia Course Objectives. Students may apply to complete an independent study during Paideia.
