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 in grades 11 and 12 may apply to complete an independent study during Paideia.
