At Pathways High we deliver the required high school academic standards through multi subject experiences called interdisciplinary seminars. Students' learning is shown through final projects and evidence of standards proficiency as opposed to a test score or grade.

Students select seminars that contain the academic pathways they need in order to graduate. Students are supported by their Academic Advisor in selecting the seminars to keep them on track for graduation.


Each seminar contains the following components:  

  • IMPACT EXPERIENCE: Real world connection opportunities. These could include field experiences, speakers and community service learning

  • EMPOWER SKILLS: Seven essential life skills to prepare students for future success

  • ACADEMIC PATHWAYS: Each seminar contains 6-10 (national and state) standards with the ability for students to "kick it up a notch" by adding additional standards with staff approval

  • FINAL PROJECT: The deliverable that demonstrates a student's understanding of the seminar objective

  • MILESTONES:  Students will have specific milestones to achieve throughout the seminar.  Often these milestones generate evidence of learning

  • EVIDENCE: Student-driven content that publically demonstrates proficiency/mastery of standards
