Student Programs

Pathways Program

Beginning the 8th grade year, Brookstone’s Pathways Program assists and empowers parents and students by providing information concerning expectations, requirements, and processes in the transition from middle school to high school.

With our small class size and caring staff, we are able to calm fears and provide encouragement in our weekly one-on-one and group counseling sessions, as students are guided through the high school application process.   The program also provides a trip to a selective private high school where students are exposed both to the expectations for prospective students and a day-in-the-life of the school campus

What might first appear overwhelming and intimidating is made a positive and successful experience as we ultimately pursue the best match for our students.  Through prayer and partnership, we provide our students and parents with all the tools necessary to make an informed decision and choose a school that is the best fit.
