Mission

Paladin Career & Technical High School nurtures a learning community that empowers students in their pursuit of social, emotional, and academic growth, thereby creating a foundation for a successful future.

Vision

Paladin Career & Technical High School seeks to inspire education systems to cultivate resilience in all students by engaging their strengths through innovative, individualized learning with a restorative and trauma-responsive approach.

Philosophy

Paladin Career & Technical High School (PCTHS) uses an innovative, holistic approach to meet the needs of each student. We believe that students’ needs for food, shelter, clothing, medical attention, as well as safety, respect, and a sense of belonging need to be met along with academic growth. Because we place a high priority on meeting these vast needs, we have an individualized instructional model for each student. Our model incorporates student support, community-building, restorative practices, and a wide variety of academic options and  supports, including work-based learning, seminars, project-based learning and experiential learning.

Students who have struggled to be successful in the education system in the past need a wide variety of support systems if they are to experience success at Paladin and beyond. In addition to the personal/ social support offered by school staff, flexibility and relationship building are also provided in the education model. Each day starts with a thirty minute success team meeting where students build and strengthen their natural resiliency by engaging in the circle process. Our restorative practices model teaches personal responsibility and the importance of being in community.

At Paladin, we believe in the innate strength of young people and their ability to overcome adversity with the right support. Our mission is to help students realize their own potential and provide an environment for  students to thrive.
