Thank you for your interest in becoming a student!

Admissions Process:

To become a student at PATHS you must be a registered high school student. Homeschooled students are welcome, but should be enrolled as part time students in their local districts. Contact your districts central office for more information on this process.

To be considered for acceptance you must first do a full session visit in the program of your choice (8:00-10:30 or 11:00-1:30). To set up a visit contact your guidance counselor at your sending school with your program(s) of choice and they will arrange a date for you. On the date given you will visit your program, participate in class and fill out a form on which the instructor will leave comments about your acceptance. If you are accepted and wish to attend, visit your counselor when you get back and confirm with them your enrollment here.

When you do a visit please consider the following:

- Music requires a second visit for an audition, a short essay (done in class), and a recommendation.
- You will actively participate in the class and be hands on.
- Programs such as welding, culinary, manufacturing, carpentry, etc. require that you wear long pants and closed toed shoes.
Visit each program page to see the individual requirements

You are also welcome to set up a tour of our facilities and get a brief look at our different programs to get an idea of which programs you would like to visit, families are welcome to tour our facilities as well!
