Pathways In Education is a non-profit organization that partners with local high schools in California to offer experiential learning trips.
‘Experiential learning’ is an innovative approach to instruction, providing relevant, real-world experience to students through hands-on activities. It promotes not only social and personal growth, but community involvement, environmentalism, and STEAM learning, and is proven to increase high school graduation rates among attendees. Participants develop life-long skills like teamwork, leadership, and critical thinking as they learn to problem solve with their peers.
The benefits of experiential learning programs are long lasting—shaping student’s lives and creating memories for years to come. These unique experiences provide great material for college essays and help students stand out during the college application process. College Tour participants report greater confidence in their future, have a higher number of submitted applications, and a better chance of finding the perfect college for them.
