In elementary school, I thought being smart was a curse. The other kids gave me shade, made fun of me, and called me names. Even some of my friends didn’t get why I liked learning and wanted something better for myself. Since going through Pathfinder, I feel great about being smart and wanting to learn.
Pathfinder is a fun, challenging after-school & summer program that prepares kids like you and me— high-achieving 5th–8th graders from New Haven Public Schools— to dream, learn, and succeed.
We are currently reviewing applications for 5th grade. Due to the large number of applicants we anticipate that letters will be mailed by early March regarding the status of a student's application. We will reach out if you are missing any materials or we require additional information.
Wait List applications are only taken during the normal application cycle. We typically receive many more applications than we have positions. It is not possible to predict when/if positions will become available.
4 Year Program Commitment: 4 Summers + after school
“Pathfinder became a match made in heaven for my son. Not only did he excel, but all these different prep schools wanted him. I’m all excited because now my son is getting ready to graduate from Princeton.”
