Welcome to Pathways


All students must demonstrate college and career readiness in English and Math. If you have not met these requirements prior to enrolling at Pathways, you must pass the three ACT WorkKeys exams in order to meet graduation requirements. We will offer this testing on specific Fridays throughout the school year. 

Sign up on this Google Form for the Friday you would like to test. Testing will be 10am to 1pm.

PATHWAYS APPLICATION PROCESS (Fall 2021) - Updated 9/8/21

If you are interested in enrolling at Pathways for the fall of 2021, you will need to follow the steps outlined below. It will involve watching a virtual information slide show, completing our online application, and having the student participate in an interview with an administrator. We are currently accepting a small number of students for Hexter 2. Please note, our Competency Based Diploma Program is currently full and students interested in this diploma will be put on a waiting list. Session choices are currently limited. Remember, students must be at least 17 years old and live in the Adams 12 Five Star Schools boundaries to attend Pathways. We are not accepting students that live out of Adams 12 boundaries. Please use these steps:

1. Watch the Virtual Information Slideshow. This will give you the basics of Pathways to make sure it is a school that you feel will fit your needs.

2. Complete our Pathways Online Application. Make sure to fill out this form with accurate contact information so that our staff can contact you for next steps. We will need accurate phone and email information. Please make sure that your voicemail is set up on your phone.

3. Once you have completed your application, our office staff will contact you to set up an in-person interview. 

4. If you last attended a school that is not part of the Adams 12 Five Star Schools system, you will need to have your transcript, IEP or 504 if applicable, and attendance/discipline records in order to participate in your interview.

5. If you are accepted, you will receive registration instructions from your interviewer. You will not be enrolled at Pathways until you have been accepted and completed registration.
