*The 5-day trip is included in the tuition for the 2023-2024 school year. Exact dates will be determined with the cohort. Families will have to arrange for their own transportation to Rocky Mountain Pathways Ranch in Allenspark, CO.
Experience the Outdoors
Hike, rock climb, ride horses, and more! All activities throughout the duration of the program are included in the trips and are supervised by Pathways staff.
This outdoor education and adventure program is designed to help students step out of their comfort zone and into an area of personal growth. It is especially great for our virtual students to socialize and make friends!
Pathways programs are unique such that we can provide academic/elective credit to students. Pathways staff will tutor students throughout the trip on the provided curriculum and support with grading.
In addition to the Program Facilitator, each trip will be equipped with a team of our Experiential Learning Educators (ELEs). Our ELEs are highly trained educators who are responsible for supporting the Program Facilitator and tour guides.
Safety & Supervision
The Pathways team provides supervision day & night, including being on-call for emergencies. All ELEs are trained in CPR/First Aid and all emergency trip protocol.
Our Program Facilitator is a highly qualified trip leader who facilitates all aspects of the trip for our students, chaperones, and staff.
The free trip to Rocky Mountain Pathways Ranch is an exclusive offer for the 2023-2024 school year. We offer a variety of other trips for our students to earn academic credits and experience the world.
The World War II tour across Europe is designed for students to follow the footsteps of heroes, spies and dictators to discover the events and places that were key to the European victory. On this 14-day trip, students will learn the impact of WWII in their travels to London, Paris, Berlin, and more.
