Silverton Paideia Academy
Silverton Paideia Students GROW. ACHIEVE. SOAR!

Silverton Paideia Academy, located in the residential neighborhood of the Village of Silverton, is a PreK-6 magnet school and community learning center within the Cincinnati Public Schools District. The school's emphases are Paideia-based instruction and Socratic seminar, a supporting Museum School pedagogy to foster problem/project-based learning, and new for 2015-1016, the adoption of The Leader in Me process (TLIM). TLIM will teach Silverton Students leadership skills through application of Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. These three pillars work together to educate the whole child and empower students to take ownership of their learning.

Silverton Paideia is proud of its continued evidence of student academic growth for all of its demographic subgroups, including the school's primary and elementary autism and multiple disabilities population. This is a tribute to the commitment of its dedicated teaching staff, a highly qualified group of educators.
