Many parents and educators agree that middle school can be the pivotal period in a child's academic experience.
With the ever increasing peer pressure and challenges outside of the classroom, students may become unfocused or lost altogether during this critical time.
Paragon provides an alternative that is distinct among private schools in the area.
Paragon has designed a program that fills a need for a limited private school experience for families that are not considering a twelve year financial commitment to private schooling.
The curriculum is designed in such a way that Paragon students returning to public schools after the eighth grade will be exceptionally prepared to enter either regular or honors programs.
Paragon's Educational Team has outstanding credentials in academic fields ranging from economics to theater. They also have extensive experience working with middle school students and are committed to making the private school experience at Paragon Prep one that reflects excellence in every way.
