Pathways Academy

Pathways Academy is a values-driven school where children with unique learning and emotional differences excel academically and socially.
Pathways Academy is committed to teaching diverse learners with specific research-based strategies that best allow them to learn and retain information.
Equal in importance to our school's commitment to promoting each student's academic achievement is our commitment to nurture the development of social skills and each child's sense of worth and well-being.
In the age of COVID-19, we are striving to be in person at our building safely. Distance learning is available to families not yet ready to send their students back to the building, and during times when in person classes are not deemed safe.
Our school is a family of learners who respect each other's strengths and challenges.
We support and care for each other just as we would want to be treated.
The result is a group of energetic and enthusiastic students and faculty who look forward to lifelong learning and compassionate missions of service to others and their communities.
Our mission is to provide a loving, nurturing, learning environment that maximizes each child's opportunities to succeed both academically and socially.
Through an ongoing identification of each child's unique learning profiles, we build upon each child's strengths and delineate his or her learning weaknesses so that we can individualize evidence-based teaching and learning strategies best suited for each child.

I have had my son at Pathways since kindergarten, and he is now In 9th grade. He has a dual diagnosis of significant autism and inattentive ADD. when he arrived at pathways he was largely nonverbal and completely uninterested in participating in school activities. Pathways gave him the tools to continue to realize his potential. He has really found a home and a family within the staff of parents. I cannot fathom how important this school has been in his development, and I HIGHLY recommend it for any student with special needs.

This school has been amazing! My son has asperger's, dyslexia, sensory processing disorder, and scotopic sensitivity. When I pulled him out of public school in the eighth grade he was at a Kindergarten reading level, and third grade math level, and hated school. He is now at grade level for math, an eighth grade reading level and loves school! They provide the small individualized attention he needs, and he has flourished academically and socially!

How Diverse Are Private Schools?
Decades ago private schools could have been accused of being elitist. You had to have money to attend. The student populations were fairly homogeneous. Fortunately that has changed.
