widl and paradigm


The IEProgram is excited to announce our partnership with Paradigm Schools in South Jordan, UT! Starting in the 2023-2024 school year, Paradigm is an official partner school of the Wasatch Independent Debate League. Students enrolled at Paradigm High School will be able to take debate as part of their regular class schedule.

Students enrolled at Paradigm will be using the WIDL curriculum, have access to all of the WIDL events, participate in WIDL tournaments, and advance through the WIDL program. In every way, students taking debate at Paradigm will be WIDL students.

Since Paradigm is a charter school, students are able to participate in the WIDL at a significant discount. The only cost is the cost of enrollment at the school. For full-time students, that's $100. But for part time students who enroll in 2-4 classes, that cost is only $50. 

We are ecstatic about this partnership as we believe it makes high quality, flexible classes even more widely available for homeschooling and independently educated families.

You won't find the Paradigm course option in our normal class schedule. Instead, enrollment in the program will be handled directly by Paradigm. To enroll, you'll need to apply through the "Start Enrollment" button below. Then, after the application process is completed, you'll need to visit Paradigm at their physical location at this address:

11577 S 3600 W, South Jordan, UT 84095

From there, Paradigm will be able to walk you through the entire enrollment process. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Mallory Woodbury from Paradigm at mwoodbury@paradigmhigh.org.

We look forward to this partnership. Paradigm was founded by homeschool families and holds our common values of educational autonomy and rigorous academics.
