Our Paladin students had a blast at Can Can Wonderland in St. Paul during February's FDE! From navigating whimsical mini-golf courses to battling it out in arcade games, they experienced the magic of this unique arts-based venue. Can Can Wonderland isn't just a place for fun—it's an economic engine for the arts! With every putt and skee ball battle, Can Can Wonderland economically supports the Minneapolis-St. Paul artist community.

Tomorrow brings new FDE options for our students to explore! Stay tuned for more exciting adventures.

Hello Paladin Knights!

In light of the severe winter storm warning, the anticipated significant snowfall overnight, and the forecasted challenging driving conditions for our small Type III passenger vans, we have made the decision to close Paladin for the day on Monday, March 25, 2024.

Our priority is always the safety and well-being of our school community, and this decision reflects our commitment to ensuring that all members of our community remain safe during severe weather events.

We wanted to share this decision with you as soon as possible, opting for tonight instead of waiting until tomorrow morning. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Stay warm, be safe, and see y'all on Tuesday the 26th!

The Paladin Approach

Paladin Career & Technical High School uses an individu­alized instructional model for each student. Our model in­corporates work-based learning, seminar-based learning, project­-based learning, and experien­tial learning to meet the needs of each individual stu­dent.

Students earn credit to­wards graduation by attend­ing educator-led seminars, participating in experiential learning opportunities (trips and treks), completing student­-led/ guided projects, meeting employment/ entrepreneur­ship goals (work-based learning), attending Post Secondary Education Options (PSEO), along with a variety of other methods.

Students who have strug­gled to be successful in the education system in the past are given a variety of support systems at Paladin Ca­reer & Technical High School.

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 learn to build and strengthen their natural resiliency by en­gaging in the circle process. The circle process gives students a platform to share progress on current projects, discuss current events, and most importantly, it gives students a chance to learn how to build relationships with both peers and adults. For many students learning how to interact in socially ac­ceptable ways is as important as building academic skills. Because of our focus on ex­periential learning, we build real-world experiences into our curriculum, helping stu­dents make immediate con­nections between the course content and the world around them. School field trips (experiential learning) are used as a tool for building commu­nity and exposure to the walls outside of the classroom. These experiences can come in any number of forms, from picking up litter in the com­munity to rock climbing. We intend for these experiences to build skills in teamwork, self- confidence and interper­sonal relationships.
