Pathways to Success
We’ve built “Pathways” into our name because we firmly believe that every student has a future-ready pathway to success. Our staff works side-by-side with students to help them realize their potential and to create personalized education plans that we routinely assess in relation to their progress toward attainment of their individual objectives.
College Readiness and Post-Secondary Planning
At Urban Pathways, we love to share our students’ successes. That’s why we’ve created our Graduation Tree to commemorate and celebrate our students’ post-graduation plans. Each student that enrolls into college or a trade school gets to share their accomplishment on a leaf of the tree. To see the tree in real life, click here.
Outside of the day-to-day school responsibilities, every student wants the flexibility to choose from a number of activities and opportunities so they can pick their path and plan for their future. It’s for these reasons that we offer our students the following resources to help them get ready for life after graduation.
Hands-on experience is invaluable, and that’s why we work with local employers in a variety of industries to give our students the chance to intern at a company.
We’ve created financial aid workshops to educate our students and their families who are getting ready to attend college or a career school.
We open our doors every April to local employers and recruiters to meet with and provide our students with information on employment opportunities.
We want our students to find the right fit after graduation so we schedule campus visits to give them the chance to see first-hand a variety of colleges and universities.
From job shadowing to internships and a number of student-led clubs to choose from, we like to keep our students busy by offering plenty of opportunities and activities that empower them to find their unique path to success!
We work with local employers around the city to give our students the chance to experience what a day-in-the-life looks like in a particular career of their interest.
Every October, we invite representatives from various colleges to join us for a college fair to help our students plan for their post-secondary education.
