Pathway is a tuition-free, public charter school in the city of Maricopa. We are a highly performing school that serves students in Kindergarten through 12th grade. Every child at Sequoia Pathway will be known. This simple statement is our promise to get to know your child and provide him or her with a program that recognizes their own special qualities and abilities. Classrooms are set-up in a manner to promote cross-curricular activities and teachers work within teams to ensure that this takes place. In budget conscious times, it has been our goal to continue to provide students the exposure to subjects such as physical education, music and art.

K-6- Our school program is geared toward state standards and run as a regular school with smaller class sizes and more hands on, activity-based learning. Onsite teachers are highly motivated, highly qualified and involved in every child's individual success.

The Pathway 7-12 program is academically rigorous, based on a combination of National Common Core Standards and Arizona State Standards. We offer both Honors programs as well as intervention for students that need extra assistance, in keeping with our philosophy that "Every Child is Known". We have a thriving fine arts and elective program that includes art, choir, instrumental music, drama, communications, journalism, Spanish and more. In addition to our comprehensive face to face program, we do offer some online options, including opportunities for students to earn college credit. We are also extremely proud of our growing sports program, which continues to impress the community by winning titles and making a name for Pathway.
