An important message from Judith Berry Griffin, founder and president of Pathways to College

To our Scholar Applicants! (high school students in grades 9-11)

Pathways to College. The name says it all. This application is one of the most important you will ever complete. If you are selected and stay with us to graduation, the chances are very high that you will be admitted to college. And, you will find that what you have learned as a Pathways Scholar will help you make the most of your college experience.

We select our Scholars very carefully! So we expect you to match the care WE take in considering this application, with the care YOU take in completing it. Here are some tips to help you send us your best effort.

  1. If at all possible, use a computer to complete this application.
  2. FOCUS. Find a quiet place away from distractions (no TV, radio, or loud talking from others, please.) Plan to spend enough time to read each question completely. Put your best effort into completing each answer.
  3. FOCUS. Be prepared to IGNORE all incoming text messages, notifications and phone calls until you have completed the application.
  4. FOCUS. Re-read your answers. Is each one your best work? If NO, go back and MAKE CHANGES. IF YES —

Good luck!

We look forward to putting you on the pathway to college!
