About PIE Schools

Pathways In Education "PIE" Schools are a combination of academic recovery, experiential learning, and life and job skills development. This innovative and integrated approach led by caring and knowledgeable staff allows students to reach levels of academic and personal achievement that many, including themselves, may have considered impossible.


Pathways In Education schools utilize a blended learning model as a unique and effective alternative for students who have fallen behind or not found success in traditional school settings. Our one-on-one, mentorship approach to learning allows students to master curricular knowledge and become inspired to achieve their dreams through education. Pathways students typically focus on only two classes at a time, matriculating at an individual pace and advancing only when mastery of subject matter is demonstrated.


Open Entry

Students can enroll virtually any weekday of the year. There is no need to wait for classes to start or the semester to begin.

Continuous Learning

The program operates year-round with no long vacations to interrupt the learning process.

Support Services

Small group instructions are offered in all levels of Mathematics, English Language Arts, and Science.



Students, parents and teachers partner to create a learning plan schedule that respects and meets the needs of students.


The low student teacher ratio allows for an effective student teacher relationship focused on academics, post-secondary goals and personal growth.

Monitoring Student Progress

Online adaptive pre test and ongoing post tests to monitor student progress throughout the year.
