Haynes is a Paideia Philosophy School
The Paideia (py-dee-a) philosophy "celebrates the fundamental notion that to be fully educated is a lifelong adventure that only begins with an individual's formal schooling." A comprehensive course of study is followed that incorporates three complementary instructional techniques:
1. Didactic instruction;
2. Intellectual coaching: and
3. Seminar discussion.
We, at Haynes, are very excited about the creation of the many student projects and student seminars that are integral parts of the Paideia program. Click here for more information about the Paideia Philosophy: National Paideia Center an affiliate of The University of North Carolina. It is going to be an exciting year as we prepare our students for the future.
