The Pathway School

The Pathway School’s Extended School Year (ESY) is a 5-week summer program designed to actively engage students in academics, social and life skills, communication, and hands-on learning. The primary goal of ESY is to maintain the progress that the student has made during the regular school year throughout the summer months.

Extended School Year (ESY) is a service recommended for students who would substantially regress in all areas of developmental skills during a typical school year’s summer break. ESY allows a student to maintain the academic, social/behavioral, communication, or other skills that they have learned as part of their IEP.

The ESY Program supports each student’s IEP goals, while providing students unique opportunities to increase their interests in educational topics and further develop recreation and leisure skills. Student services, such as Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy continue to throughout the 6 week ESY program.
