Pathways is a Micro-hybrid educational alternative. Micro meaning small, and hybrid meaning a cross between homeschool and school.
Pathways started with a small group of like-minded individuals who desired an alternative way to teach and learn. We wanted to develop a model that utilized project-based learning with an emphasis on environmental stewardship and living history.
Teachers will serve as facilitators who will guide students in researching and planning hands-on projects that will address real-life questions and issues. Our students will work collaboratively with each other, faculty, and community members to develop projects that will benefit the larger community.
Pathways seeks to provide a Christ-centered education and develop student volunteers and citizens who have a passion for their environment and community.
At Pathways, we believe that learning should....
» Point to the Creator.
» Be relevant and purposeful.
» Develop the whole child; spiritually, intellectually, socially, and physically.
» Be active rather than passive. Students learn best “by doing” and by engaging in first-hand experiences.
» Involve student choices and decision-making concerning their educational interests.
» Involve adults who care about students, are positive role-models, and provide constructive feedback and guidance.
» Encourage group activities that promote teamwork and communication.
» Be joyful and fun.
