Pathway educates and equips students who struggle in a traditional classroom by providing them with skills and strategies to grow academically, socially, and spiritually. Pathway School builds confidence, social skills, and academic success in a safe, Christian environment for children with learning challenges.  We recognize each child’s unique qualities, gifts, and needs, build upon their strengths and overcome barriers to learning. Our teachers use programs and research-based teaching strategies targeted to meet the needs of children who learn differently; all to ensure a positive future for each child we serve. 

Each student has a unique learning profile complete with strengths, weaknesses, and interests. At Pathway, we take time to understand children, develop programs, and continually tweak instruction based on the individual.

  • Upon entry, students are assessed to determine their ‘just right’ instructional level in core subjects.
  • Student progress is monitored and instruction is changed to either reinforce or advance concepts as needed.

  • Student work and projects are matched with student strengths and affinities.
  • Class size is kept to a maximum of 12:1, often with smaller groupings in core subjects to best target individual needs.

School of Rock Performance-Based Music Programs Rock Socializing— With Social Distancing

Kids have been inspired in the School of Rock community for the last 8 and half years, learning music by playing music– together. Through programs designed for all skill levels, students go from lessons and rehearsal to performance– developing confidence, talent and teamwork skills along the way. Students, ages 7 to 18 engage in a private, one-on-one lesson. Those weekly lessons come with a bonus: the chance to be a rock star. Once enrolled, students become part of a band as well, and play in a socially distanced rehearsal each week. Bands are determined by skill level and age. They practice together for a season (about 4 months) and then play a show. This unique approach allows students to use what they learn from their teacher in the real-world setting of a band, comprised of their peers. They learn to rock on stage and in life.

School of Rock community members also have access to our one-of-a-kind, fully integrated Method app. The App provides an enhanced learning experience and reinforced practice schedule. Parents and students know what should be worked on and progress can be tracked.

Programs—Something For All Ages

Rookies

Ages 5-7. Fun musical activities and hands-on experience with guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and singing, so they can discover which instrument interests them most.
