National Paideia Center

The National Paideia Center works to inspire and support the systemic reformation of American public schools based on the Paideia program, first articulated by philosopher Mortimer Adler during the early 1980s. We focus on whole-school improvement of teaching and learning, leading to academic rigor for all students.
