The Pathways Academy Charter School delivers quality FREE online content with highly qualified teachers. Students, ages 19-24, can access their courses 24/7, working at their own pace to earn an accredited high school diploma. Students will receive weekly outreach from a teacher and have access to content teachers via phone, email, text message, or instant message.
Each student will receive a personalized learning plan from their School Counselor with the courses left to meet graduation requirements. Students also get college and career counseling to help them towards their post-secondary goals.
This program is highly flexible, focusing on mastery based instruction. Students take an online exam at the beginning of all core courses. Previous knowledge will result in a decrease in assigned course work, allowing students to complete courses faster by demonstrating mastery of California content standards. This means that students focus on coursework that they struggle with and bypass assignments for which the student has shown content mastery.
Students who prefer to work online, watch video instruction, and learn independently. If you choose, Pathways Charter School students may use the Youth Center computers for completion of their coursework.
Call the Youth Center, (562) 383-4227, for more information on how to enroll.
