Program Description:
The Pathways School - Edgewood integrates academic, therapeutic, and vocational services through school-based and community-based programming. Enrollment in the school-based or the community-based program is determined based on the specific needs of each student. The school-based program offers a more traditional classroom environment with opportunities to engage in work and educational experiences in the community. Students in the community-based program receive programming within a variety of other settings which facilitate the students engaging in their learning. The course offerings through both program models allow students to earn a Maryland or District of Columbia High School Diploma or Certificate of Program Completion. This program offers credit courses through individual and small group instruction following county curriculum. Students are prepared to transition into the next phase of their lives. For some, this may be to prepare for a less restrictive secondary school placement or to take the GED test in the future, and for others, it may be to prepare for post-secondary education, career training, or the world of work. Students determined to be eligible for extended school year have an option to participate in Pathways’ credit recovery ESY program.
