A high school experience that’s engaging and purposeful

In a Personalized Pathway, a student will progress through their core high school content courses, from ninth grade until graduation, in a smaller learning community, allowing them to develop strong, positive relationships with a close-knit group of students and staff who check in regularly and provide support to help students reach their goals.

Core content classes revolve around a theme. Students in the pathway will have opportunities to explore academic subjects related to Health Services in and outside of school to deepen their learning and connect it to future possibilities.

Students will also have opportunities to take honors and Advanced Placement (AP) courses, as well as elective courses outside of their pathway. Students drive their decisions based on their own interest.
