Ferndale Public Schools curricular pathways

January 17, 2019

Ferndale Schools' curricular pathways empower students to self-direct their learning by making course choices to fit their areas of interest and career goals. Each pathway is designed around a broad area of focus:

  • Visual & Performing Arts
  • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Humanities

 

(Pathways have been designed based on student survey data over the past decade regarding students’ interests and career aspirations.)

 

Electives are designed to support career-readiness and teach specific skills needed. Juniors and Seniors benefit from individualized offerings like internships, virtual mentors or online classes.

 

Students are asked to select a pathway by the end of their freshman year, but anyone can change pathways as interests change.The pathways are designed to make sure that students are getting their required credits for graduation no matter which pathway they choose. They appeal to many different types of students, and we have created new classes specifically for these pathways that strengthen their relationship to the themes.
