"If you have the chance, do it." ~ J'Nisha, college student

I met people like me at Pathfinder.

When I went to Pathfinder, I got to be around kids like me. Sure, there was a LOT of homework, but knowing that the other kids had goals and interests like I did kept me going. Plus, the teachers at Pathfinder are awesome! Some of them are adults, who I still talk to if I need advice about what I’m doing in college. Some of the teachers are students in high school and college who remember what it’s like to be a kid.

At Pathfinder, I learned how to succeed.

I had big dreams but no idea how to achieve them. I didn’t know if I was smart enough or talented enough. At Pathfinder, I discovered that memorizing facts doesn’t make you smart; asking questions and understanding concepts helps you reach your goals. At Pathfinder, I learned skills I’ll use my whole life.

You should DEFINITELY apply to Pathfinder!

We never had much money at home, but thanks to Pathfinder, I got into a great prep school on full scholarship, and now I’m at the college of my dreams.
