    Seldom do I rate anything but this school is amazing. My daughter graduated and because of the work and learning ethic instilled to her at the Paideia school and at home she entered her freshman year as a sophmore having attained 30 credits by the time she graduated high school. The teachers and faculty are passionate about the classical model for educating children to be successful in whatever disciplines they pursue later in life. Disciples Scholars Citizens in that order are what they are producing. Today my daughter is excelling in university because of her prior years of preparation and has received a world class education by studying the classics Latin. As a father it was worth every cent I paid to have her at Paideia. I also have another child who is following in his old sisters footsteps and is excelling as well. I invite you to go there and check it out for yourself.

    I'm a senior at Paideia and love my education! Looking back I can understand now the importance of the Trivium and how my classes have built on each other with each grade level. The thesis defense and Apologetics class really is the pinnacle of my education. I'm blessed to say I have a better education than most of my classmates in my college dual enrollment classes... and I'm still in High School! I honestly love Paideia the Classical Christian Curriculum and the loving people there (teachers and students). Definitely worth the investment!

    Excellent!!! My only regret is not finding The Paideia School of Tampa Bay when we relocated to Tampa. Sometimes you have to stumble before you find a GEM and that's what we was worth it. Excellent teachers and staff...I can't say enough about the quality of education high standards individualized attention nurturing environment...seriously could go on. Please go see for yourself. Open House usually in February and March...don't miss it! Parent

    The Christian culture that has been instituted by the headmaster faculty and family members has helped reinforce my family's Christian standards and helped develop more Christian character in my two children. The vision for the future of Christian leadership in our country is being developed and instilled in my children as well. The sweet Spirit of the Lord is present

    Highest academic standard. innovative ideas (ask about the great hall!) expert dedicated faculty and the parental involvement is the best I have ever seen. The Paideia School is a Classical and Christian school and keeps to the disciplines of the trivium. The school's definition of education speaks volumes. 'Education is the cultivation of wisdom and virtue by nourishing the soul on truth goodness and beauty so that the student may glorify God and enjoy him forever.' It is definitely a great school.
