OUR APPROACH TO SUCCESS

Identifying potential and developing leaders in under-represented populations remains a critical challenge in our society.

Our Goals

A key way to address this challenge – and the challenge of overall school performance – is strengthening students’ ability to win admission to and succeed in the best possible colleges, given their interests and abilities.

SCHOLAR VOICES 2020

Welcome to the 2020 issue of Scholar Voices, the Literary Magazine of Pathways to College!

Introduction

This has been a year when our success must be celebrated twice – once for living through the fear, sadness and isolation of COVID-19, and again for living through the fear, sadness and anger of the racial tensions brought to light by acts of brutality that left many people not only deeply hurt and discouraged, but also re- committed to working for justice and equal treatment for all.

Scholars Program

In pursuit of our goal of expanding the numbers of underserved students earning a college degree, Pathways to College has developed a remarkably successful strategy that links college preparation and access with school improvement.

Associate Scholars Program

Pathways provides a distance-learning opportunity for students in high schools where the Scholars Program is currently unavailable. The Associate Scholars Program offers information and support to selected students who are beginning the process of exploring career opportunities and applying to college.

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.

Pathways to Leadership

We ask and expect our Scholars to become “courageous leaders” – in school, at home and in their communities. We work at preparing them to do so by providing experiences that not only help them to succeed in high school and college, but also help them encourage real change in their worlds.

Pathways Partner Colleges

Pathways invites colleges and universities to join its membership network, since they seek the kind of students with whom the program is working. Partner Colleges receive the names of those in our student pool, and support their aspirations by presenting information on their institutions.

Pathways Teacher Development

From a pool initially identified by students, we hire up to four of the most effective teachers in each participating school. These teachers provide coaching support, targeting the critical life skills and intellectual habits of mind that research tells us are essential to prepare for and succeed, academically and personally in college and beyond.
