Welcome to Pathways


We are excited to have our new enrollment process up and running. We are not allowed to have group gatherings, so we are not having in-person information sessions. If you are interested in enrolling at Pathways for the fall of 2020, you will need to use this new process. It will involve watching a virtual information slide show, completing our online application, and having the student participate in a Google Virtual Meeting with an administrator. 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 out of district students. Please use these steps:

1. Watch 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 an interview. We will need accurate phone and email information. Please make sure that your voicemail is set up on your phone.

3. Our office staff will reach out to schedule your interview with Google Meet. You will need to access a phone or computer for a video chat.

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 a phone call this summer to pick up and complete your registration paperwork.

6. We are currently taking a break for summer vacation. Once you fill out the application, you will receive a phone call after 7/29/20 to set up next steps.

Pathways Future Center School is an alternative education campus that uses a blended learning model to meet the needs of our students.  We are currently accepting students for the 2020/2021 school year. Spots are prioritized for students based on age and credit. Potential students must be at least 17 years old and live in Adams 12 Five Star Schools boundaries. Plan to arrive before the session begins, as we will start on time.  You will need time to go through the check in process. Please be aware that the doors will close once the information session has started. If you arrive after this time, you will be asked to attend the next information session.  Please see our Enrollment Page for details on the process of becoming a Pathways student.
