Pathways Future Center School is a a school of choice in the Adams 12 Five Star School District. We work with students between the ages of 17 and 20 who are looking for an alternative education setting that combines online learning with face to face classes. Students attend school for approximately three hours per day. We offer three different sessions: morning, afternoon, and evening. Students attend one of the three sessions, Monday-Thursday, and then also spend between 12 and 15 hours per week working on online curriculum outside of the school. There are office hours on Fridays for students to access teachers for help. A student can work on online coursework anywhere that has internet access.
There are three education programs offered at Pathways Future Center School: Traditional Adams 12 Diploma, Competency Based Adams 12 Diploma, and Credit Recovery classes. Please see the Our Programs section of the website for details.
The Pathways school calendar is divided into six grading periods instead of the traditional two grading periods found in most schools. Our grading periods are called hexters. In each hexter, a traditional diploma student is scheduled for classes that will earn 1.5 credits. This allows students to earn 9 credits in a school year in a standard schedule. Students have the opportunity to accelerate this pace through additional online classes and work based credit opportunities. We take new students at the beginning of each of the six hexter grading periods throughout a school year.
Because Pathways is a school of choice, it must be a good fit for each student. The enrollment steps outlined on this page will guide you through the process of becoming a Pathways student.
The Pathways Application System is currently closed. We are processing all applications that were submitted by 6/1/2021 and will complete those interviews. Once we have determined our current number of students, we will post the application system again. Remember, students must be 17 years old and live in the Adams 12 Five Star Schools boundaries to attend Pathways. We are not accepting out of district students.
If you have questions about the enrollment process, please feel free to contact the school.
