Academics

My PATH scheduling works with a few different programs that are offered by Connections for Learning. Students and families have the opportunity to select from these options in order to complete their core academics:

Activities

The following subject areas are covered in the My PATH Program:

  • Physical Literacy Development
  • Recreational Sports
  • Environmental / Outdoor Education
  • Fine and Performance Arts
  • Community Leadership
  • Health and Life Skills
  • STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics)

Students are grouped according to grade level, and these groups are typically the same as in the core academic program. Each group of up to 25 students participates in a different activity every afternoon throughout the week.

The amount of time in the school year devoted to each subject varies. For example, the same community partner facilitates Outdoor Education throughout the entire school year, while many different community partners cover the topic of Recreational Sports, breaking up the school year with a variety of sport activities.

A typical day in My PATH may look something like this:
