Students enrolled in Online Courses should be 90% Completed!


Can you believe with only four weeks remaining of our school year that we also have at least 8 inches of fresh snow on the ground? Our littles will be happy that the sledding hill has some fresh powder to play in until it starts to melt again. With our school year quickly wrapping up we have so much left to do. It seems like there can't possibly be enough time to get it all done! But as in the past, we will manage and do our best to serve our families.

A few families have reached out to ask questions regarding whether Family Partnership's changing of status will have any impact on us. As of right now, the only impact we are experiencing is a slight increase in people who are leaving their previous school. PAIDEIA will continue to be an exemplary example of how well we work with families to provide the best possible homeschool education and supports for parents.

This summer will be full of changes for PAIDEIA, the best news for you as families as there will only be positive impacts for your student! One change will be that our school will be taking over as ASD's online learning provider. We will support the online learning platforms for the entire school district. Our staff has grown to support these students.

The second big change for us will be that pending board approval next month, our school will undergo a name change to AKChoice K-12 Learning. This new name encompasses all that we have to offer our families. The choice to make the best educational decisions for their student and family. More information will be provided to families as changes occur.

Social Media Posts

There are many platforms for parents to support our school and all the amazing opportunities we can provide students. As other schools recently have been at the center of obstacles, we continue to be steadfast in our mission. However, we have a lessened presence of support on platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. For those of you who have social media platforms, please consider sharing your personal success stories and recommending our school on Facebook, Instagram, and homeschool networks. We appreciate any positive experiences that can be shared with families looking for new options. One parent to another is the best recommendation our school can get.
