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.
