What is your typical student profile?
Here at Bolder Pathway, we don’t have a typical student.  We have many different types of children with various learning and emotional needs.  We are an inclusive environment with students who live and learn outside the box of traditional education.  We have students that are Twice Exceptional and Gifted, are on the Autism Spectrum, have ADD, Dyslexia, or other learning disability,  and developmentally delayed, as well as students with mild emotional behavior disorders such as Bi-Polar, depression and anxiety.
What is your classroom size and ratio?

At Bolder Pathway School, our virtual classrooms are limited to 4 students. Our overall staff to student ratio is 1:2.

What curriculum and standards do you rely on?
Bolder Pathway provides a high standard of education by combining traditional learning outcomes with adaptive teaching methods to meet individual needs.  We use the Colorado State Standards as the base, but have also added some additional rigors to our course content.  Our curriculum, developed in-house, is fluid and easily modified for individual student needs without losing the core content expected for a college bound student.
How much is tuition?

Tuition starting July 1, 2021 is $12,000 per student.  We offer a monthly payment plan to all families for a fee to cover administration costs.

Do you require IQ testing?

No.  IQ profiles vary and a lower IQ is not always indicative of a child’s ability to learn.  However, we do welcome these scores when they are available as another tool to help determine the best way to meet your child’s individual needs. We also use the KTEA-III and its accompanying dyslexic screener on an as-needed basis.  We can offer this virtually as well!

What grade levels do you serve?

Our school is for students between the ages of 10 and 21, covering 5th through 12th grade with college assistance programs for students dual enrolled or those that need extended time to complete their high school diploma.

Do you offer a part-time option?

Because of the high demand for so few spaces at our school, we are not able to give a discount for part-time students.  However, we do encourage our students to take special electives which we monitor for obtaining additional credits towards graduation at the high school level.

How many students attend?

We currently have 4 virtual students attending.

Are you Accredited?
As of January 1st, 2016 we have received Accreditation through the National Commission on Exceptional Schools.  You can read about their Accreditation Standards here.
How do you track student progress?

We use several methods to evaluate and track student progress .  The primary way we track progress is through “I Can” statements for each lesson, which are tied to the standards.  Our report cards are standards based and will identify where a child is within the required curriculum.  We also use the KTEAII formal assessment, portfolio projects, and pre/post assessments.  Parents may request a meeting at any time for a progress update.

Do you teach social skills?

Not this time.

Does your year-round schedule accommodate family vacations?

Yes! Because each student is on an individual plan, we will simply continue with their academics at their pace and level when they return. Our year round program is built to be flexible for your family. Our school year is 190 days per year, 18 days more than the typical public and private school, which enables us to be more flexible with learning sessions.

How do you prepare students for graduation?

As students transition to the high school level, we begin to actively prepare them for standardized tests like the ACT and SAT, as well as college course work.  We also love to collaborate with the community and are committed to developing relationships with a local business for elective credits.
