Paige Academy is a non-profit, alternative educational institution, offering a comprehensive, cultural affirming and developmentally based Arts, Sciences, Humanities and Technology program for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years.
Based on the seven principles of Kwanza- an African American philosophy that promotes unity, self determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith- Paige Academy’s educational philosophy and campus culture provide a self affirming environment that fosters academic excellence, individual worth and collective responsibility. Paige is committed to providing arts based, child friendly, and project centered education that involves the whole family in a n “urban village” community of cultural reaffirmation and ethnic understanding.
The program would benefit the Paige Academy community which is inclusive of, and responsive to, families of varying economic levels and educational backgrounds. Paige seeks to celebrate the economic, educational and cultural richness of its “urban village” by considering parents, students, staff and faculty to be members of a supportive and respectful extended family.
