Algoma’s Pathfinder Academy experienced another successful year as some of its practices may end up in a more traditional school setting. The Pathfinder Academy, which opened its doors last summer, takes students struggling in the traditional classroom setting and places them on a different road to success through more self-directed, interactive means. Superintendent Nick Cochart says he is proud of the program’s achievements and sees some of the concepts being introduced at the other schools, even if the Pathfinder Academy itself does not expand.
Cochart believes the Pathfinder Academy will grow organically over the upcoming years as middle and high school students make their way through the program.
