Pathways to College: Lessons Plans, K-12

A condition of participating in the Pathways to College Day is providing your students with an opportunity to learn about college inside and outside of the classroom. This not only adds value to in-classroom experiences, but it enriches participation and enthusiasm at Pathways to College Day.  Students are able to make greater connections with the idea of higher education as well as:

•    Career exploration and job-related skills
•    Debunking myths about college
•    Dreams and aspirations about higher education
•    Goal setting and making choices
