Olde Providence is proud to be a Paideia Seminar Nationally Certified School!

A Paideia Seminar is defined as a collaborative intellectual dialogue facilitated with open-ended questions about a text. Specific learning objectives for the Paideia Seminar include both intellectual and social skills. Each seminar nurtures proficiency in both thinking and communication.

Consistent implementation of seminar practice across a school community results in:

  • significantly improved achievement scores in reading and writing, especially among traditionally underserved populations;
  • improved student motivation due to increased student voice in an active environment;
  • a more respectful school culture with fewer behavior problems.
