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 innovative 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.
