Admissions Requirements:

The admissions team reviews current educational records (IEP, RR, FBA, PBSP, assessments/evaluations done in the last 2 years) to determine if the needs of a student can be met based on that records review. If the team feels our program could be an appropriate option to consider, the student and his guardians are invited to come to campus for a tour and intake meeting.

Tours can be scheduled at any time during the decision-making process, and do not require that a referral has been submitted.

Mission Statement:

The Pathway School has evolved since it's start in 1061, and we respect and appreciate our history. Throughout all of its growth, the school's mission has remained the same: to build academic, social, and life skills in students with special needs, to promote their success and independence after Pathway.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

We believe that every student deserve the right to a quality education in an environment which challenges their abilities and supports their needs. Each student has the right to be respected and encouraged, and to learn from every experience they have. We value the collaboration from our families and the support professionals who may be involved with a student after school hours. We believe that through strong collaboration, the students will gain skills and be able to generalize them to other environments. Our goal is to provide the supports and services necessary to help all consider when a student is ready for a less restrictive environment, and we work collaboratively with our school partners and parents to bridge a responsible transition from Pathway to that next school program.

School History:

At its founding in 1961, Pathway was among the very few schools in the greater Philadelphia area designed exclusively for the learning disabled child, and unified the disciplines of psychology, psychiatry, medicine and social work with education. Since then, The Pathway School has increased the size of enrollment and staff who support the students, developed the vibrant learning environment located on a 12-acre campus in Jeffersonville, and solidified its reputation as a leader in innovative, quality programs and services for those who need a specialized education.
