Memorial Pathway Academy
The Non-Traditional High School Program offers two computer-based educational sessions to meet the needs of diverse students. With morning and afternoon sessions, Memorial hopes to accommodate numerous student schedules. Teachers and students work with a computer-based program to complete course requirements.
Edgenuity, a web-based virtual school, is the primary software that students use to obtain original credits. It is user-friendly and visually interesting, yet it is also academically challenging and rigorous.
The teacher student ratio is significantly less at Memorial with one teacher per 15 students. This allows teachers to give students more one-on-one individualized attention and support. Students needing EOC STAAR testing are offered tutoring in a small group setting.
Teachers and staff offer student encouragement through a unique wall signing ceremony held each Friday. Each student who has completed one or more courses is allowed to place his or her name on the signing wall in the Commons area.
Potential students are identified at their home campuses by their counselors, teachers and administrators. Once identified, the student must submit an application and go through an interview process with the principal and counselor. If a student meets all the criteria, he or she will be admitted to the program.
