Pathways to Learning
The Pathways to College approach to learning is based on establishing a family-type setting of teachers and learners where students have exciting opportunities to experience, explore and quietly reflect, thereby developing and practicing the habits of life-long learners.
The Curriculum Outline that guides our teachers includes such items as: learning and research; asking thoughtful questions, big-picture thinking; exploring careers and the culture of the workplace; and becoming a citizen of the world – ideas that encourage curiosity, problem-solving and personal initiative. Class sessions revolve around sharing and developing ideas through class discussion and teamwork, and building critical thinking, speaking and writing skills. Guest speakers and trips to college campuses are important components.
