Vision Statement


Pathways shall be an educational institute where children embrace a diverse community, value education through mastery and synthesis of theories and practices, and who study the world through global languages, global issues, and global connections.

Mission Statement
Pathways recognizes that every child is a product of their environment through nurture and with the proper encouragement, guidance, support, education and through fostering their natural personal talents and life-purpose; all children have the innate abilities to become global leaders and scholars in our society.

 

Core Focuses

Global Leadership, Social Entrepreneurship and Environmental Conservation

 

Global Leadership Focus
Our students study the world through three main themes: global issues, global culture and global connections. The purpose is for the curriculum's essential ideas to correlate with the daily lives of students. Through this practice, students develop skills such as: issue analysis, problem solving, interpretation, reasoned persuasion, and research investigation. Students are encouraged daily to become actively involved at the local, state and national levels by practicing their civic duty through relationships with our economic, social and political systems.

 

The leadership development of students is a vital focus of PGLA. "Nurturing and Inspiring Future Global Leaders" is more than just our motto. It is what today's society requires of our students in order to be productive global citizens. We strive to develop in every student an awareness of his or her own leadership potential.

 

Social Entrepreneurship Focus
PGLA students will become a special type of leader, one who creates and implements an innovative and profitable solution to a local or global issue. This ability is not necessarily innate; the ability will be developed via consistent instruction.

Students are taught how to distinguish an entrepreneur from a social entrepreneur, the latter being a special type of leader, one who creates and implements an innovative and profitable solution to a local or global issue.

 

Conservation Focus
The conservation awareness component teaches our students how to be active participants in preserving and protecting our environment. We will take a pledge to adopt the practices of recycling, reusing, reducing and repurposing in the school and neighboring community.
