Our Pathway Programs use an applied, hands-on/minds-on approach to learning that is connected to real-world work experiences. Students in these programs have access to some unique facilities including: a newly renovated restaurant, the J’eanne D’Arc Credit Union, the 1826 School Store, an in-house television/media center and state-of-the-art computer and robotics equipment. We also partner with local employers as we grow our externships/internship programs providing students an opportunity to apply the classroom skills to intern positions in the workplace.

  • Courses tailored to a specific area of study, with a strong career focus.
  • Teachers with industry experience as well as educational certifications.
  • Skill-building around career trajectories and paths of study.
  • Opportunities for students, parents, teachers and community members to be partners in the educational process.
