“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.”
When I started Pathfinder, it seemed like a lot of work, and it was. But with mentoring from the teachers and my family’s support, I got it all done. I learned so much at Pathfinder—not just facts, but skills I still use in college. I learned time management, critical thinking, and how to ask the right questions.
GOING TO PATHFINDER WAS ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS I EVER MADE.
I’m so glad my mom encouraged me. I know picking me up at Pathfinder on Thursday evenings was difficult for her, but I’m grateful she worked it out. I got into prep school with a scholarship, and now I’m at my top choice college. If your kid is thinking about applying to Pathfinder, I would say help them GO FOR IT!
Pathfinder was the first place I felt it was okay to be smart, okay to want more in life, and okay to be myself. I made friends at Pathfinder who I still keep in touch with today. Having that comfort level gave me the confidence and the drive I needed to 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.
