Pathways School is a state approved, private day school serving students with special education needs including specific learning differences, attention deficits, executive functioning deficits, Autism and other exceptionalities.
Pathways accepts the Empowerment Scholarship and partners with several student tuition organizations to help provide scholarships for students in need of our services. Military families relocating to Arizona are immediately eligible for these scholarships.
Pathways School has full time speech and OT staff, certified teachers and a low student: teacher ratio.
We accept applications all year. The admission process is listed below.
Each applicant is considered on an individual basis.
The first step is to tell us about your child. Please fill out our interest form and return it with a copy of your child’s current IEP and MET/evaluation to Info@PathwaysSchool.org Since we embrace a philosophy in which the needs of children come first, we base enrollment decisions on whether our school has the resources to meet your child’s needs. Therefore, pending review of these documents, we will then schedule a tour of the school and a meeting with the director. Parents/Guardians will be notified of an enrollment decision within 1 week.
Upon acceptance of the enrollment offer, the parent/guardian will sign a student contract and provide a $500 deposit to secure enrollment (the amount is non-refundable but will be deducted from the student’s annual tuition.)
The completion of the enrollment process is pending receipt of the following documents:

This is not an exhaustive list and each student is considered for enrollment on an individual basis. Diagnosis and/or eligibility category does not determine acceptance into the program.
Decisions about curriculum are based on the individual needs of the student.
Each student’s learning profile, attention needs, and language skills are considered when developing the appropriate literacy program. Most students will have a primary therapeutic program and may also have a supplemental program as it is appropriate.
