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. Those who have struggled to find academic success in the past may need a wide variety of support to achieve their goals at Paladin and beyond. We believe that food, shelter, clothing, access to healthcare, safety, respect, and a sense of belonging are prerequisites to social, emotional, and academic growth. Because we place a high priority on meeting these vast needs, we emphasize a student-centered instructional model. This incorporates student support, community-building, restorative practices, topical seminars, work-based learning, project-based learning, and experiential learning to meet the unique needs of each student.

We believe in a relationship-first approach to cultivating a successful school climate. All students engage in the circle process during daily success team meetings where they strengthen their natural resilience and teamwork skills by making valuable connections with students and Paladin staff. We believe that through our trauma-responsive, social emotional learning, and restorative practice approach, students learn personal responsibility, self-confidence, and the importance of being engaged 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 to provide an environment in which they can truly thrive.
