Pursuing Achievement Through Higher Education (PATH) Tucson is dedicated to shepherding all current and alumni students of Santa Cruz and St. John the Evangelist on the path to and through college and to heaven by accompanying them on their educational journeys through tracking, supporting, and coaching. We team with the schools to provide the tools our children need to develop strong character and strengthen their spirituality through each stage of their education.
We accomplish this through our three pillars:
College Persistence Classes
- Weekly in-school courses for middle school scholars on developmentally appropriate hard and soft skills needed en route to higher education (ex. organizational skills, calculating GPA, choosing the best fit high school, etc.)
PATH Summer Experience
- Optional 3-summer commitment for rising 7th - rising 9th graders to experience dynamic academic enrichment,character formation, and college preparation with college students are their teachers!
- College persistence counseling from 9th grade through the completion of post-secondary education (ex. Socio-emotional counseling, choosing a best fit college, applying for financial aid, securing internships, etc.)
Where We Serve
PATH (Tucson) serves current students and alumni of Santa Cruz and St. John the Evangelist Catholic Schools. The PATH Summer Experience is hosted at St. Augustine Catholic High School.
