About Pathways Travels
Pathways Travels programs focuses on experiential learning by engaging students in critical thinking, problem solving and decision making through a process of learning by doing. Other key socioemotional components to experiential learning include self-awareness, confidence, and teamwork.
These programs give students the opportunity to travel to various locations and earn credits while learning about the destinations they visit. Pathways’ programs are an invaluable resource for our students. It is one of the many elements of our program that sets us apart from other schools. For many of our students, traveling is not yet an option and the trips provide exposure to parts of the world that are outside of their neighborhood.
