What is your typical student profile?
What is your classroom size and ratio?
At Bolder Pathway School, classrooms are limited to 6 students. Our overall staff to student ratio is 1:2.
What curriculum and standards do you rely on?
How much is tuition?
Tuition starting July 1, 2019 is $22,000 per student. If your child requires one-to-one assistance throughout the school day, please contact us and we can discuss how to arrange for this need, as well as additional costs involved. 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.
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 have students that leave after core academics so they can take special electives not offered here or participate in sports, theater, or band activities.
How many students attend?
We have averaged 18 students over the last 3 years, with room for a total of 48 students in our current location.

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?
Social skills are taught on a daily basis through normal interactions during the school day. Students are taught compassion and empathy for their classmates. When student conflicts arise, it is typical that both students sit down with at least 2 teachers to discuss the events that led up to the issues and how to resolve the problem.
