Students at Pathways Early College Academy attend Symposiums twice a week to gain hands-on experience through project-based learning.
Honing Passion with Purpose
Our symposiums blend the best of the Oxford tutorial system with project-based learning. Students select from one of three paths: Design, STEM, or Business. Within these paths we provide students with knowledge and resources to complete self-directed passion projects independently or in teams. These projects are designed to help students be of service to their communities while also building professional work portfolios.
For example, Business students might launch a company that recycles fabric for local fashion designers. This company would collaborate with Design students for dynamic marketing campaigns while STEM students would build secure websites that protect customer data. By engaging in projects that they choose, students help shape their education while building tangible skills that lead successful careers.
