With the success of the Algoma Pathfinder Academy, the question now for school officials is how to keep the experience consistent if more students are added. The program is just over a year old and has provided students a place to learn in a different way outside of the walls of the traditional classroom. Algoma School District Superintendent Nick Cochart says other school districts have inquired about the Pathfinder Academy and if they can send kids there. At this point, Cochart says they simply do not have the space.
At under 20 students, Cochart says they will look to them to decide on the direction the Pathfinder Academy takes in terms of its scope in the future.
