The Classical Academy College Pathways Reviews

Overall, I love College Pathways. The hybrid learning environment works really well for me, because I do not have to be in class for seven hours a day. It has given me some amazing opportunities, such as taking concurrent enrollment courses at Pikes Peak Community College. I have taken over 20 credit hours at the college already. Also, most of the teachers are excellent instructors who have helped me grow intellectually and supported me through an extremely challenging curriculum. Because of the schedule, the social life at College Pathways is different: you have to work much harder to make and keep friends, but it is worth it in the end. Unfortunately, College Pathways does not offer very many clubs or after-school activities, but the free college makes up for it. This school has prepared me academically and mentally for anything college will bring.

At College Pathways, my high school schedule is set up like a college schedule. We have events like any normal high school would. However, College Pathways isn't for everyone. It does prepare you for the college environment though. I really like that they have a class to prepare you for college. I also like how they let you take college classes at Pikes Peak Community College while taking high school classes simultaneously. They don't charge you for the classes either, unless you drop a class after the drop date. To me, college seems like a breeze since the curriculum at College Pathways is so rigorous. One of the things that I would like to change is their uniform policy. I wish that they would allow you to wear casual clothing instead of uniforms, especially if you are taking both high school classes and college classes. It's a real hassle to change out of your uniform and put on casual clothes before heading over to the college or vice versa if you're coming back from the college.
At TCA College Pathways, I most enjoy the sense of community there. The kindness of teachers and fellow students forms a loving and enjoyable community. The teachers care about their students having a life outside of school, so they provide their students with homework that is only beneficial for them. Also, the schedules at TCA College Pathways allow students to have more freedom in their days by not having a full schedule everyday. Students there also have the opportunity to take classes at the community college located next to the high school. This allows students to experience college classes and have more freedom in choosing courses. The one downside of TCA College Pathways is that some students take most of their classes at the community college, so they do not meet many classmates at College Pathways other than the few in their limited amount of classes there. Overall, the school is a welcoming place that strives to prepare its students for college.
