Academics

We seek to provide a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum for students with average to above average intelligence (IQ), who require individualized instruction. Whether a student has a diagnosed learning disability or simply requires a smaller classroom environment, our program gives them the individual attention they deserve to have the best opportunity for success.

“Paladin has helped me with my work ethic. I have made many friends, and teachers actually show they care by taking the time to help.” – Paladin student

We partner with parents to help shape each student’s path. Every student has an individualized program plan employing flexible, multi-level, multi-faceted and multi-sensory strategies. Based on the student’s needs assessment, this plan includes a student profile, annual goals, short-term objectives and assessment criteria. We review the student’s academic and social progress against the plan on an ongoing basis. The result of this planning and guidance is that our students “learn how to learn,” thus developing the self-confidence so critical to success in school and life.
