Silverton Paideia Academy, organized by grade level departments and teacher teams, is committed to providing each student a well-rounded education, offering high-level, rigorous instruction in the core content subjects: English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, augmented with the supplemental subjects of Visual Arts, Music, Physical Education and Technology. Grades PreK-2 make up the Primary Department and grades 3-6 round out the Intermediate Department.


All students in grades 5-9 belong to an Advisory Team. Advisory Teams are made up of a small group of students and a teacher. They are a place where students make plans: for school, for college, for their careers and for their futures. This is a safe time to talk about barriers and needs; to be serious, but to have fun, too. Advisories are helping students build academic and social skills by breaking down barriers, fostering relationships, strengthening listening skills and, most important, building trust.

Content Standards

At CPS, we aim to ensure all of our students graduate from high school ready for the career paths of their choice.
