Pathfinder Academy is an accredited alternative school providing a safe educational environment supporting positive participation in education, family and community for pregnant and parenting youth. Completion of a high school education makes a huge difference in the life of a teen mother and her family.
"Teen pregnancy is closely linked to poverty and single parenthood. A 1990 study showed that almost one-half of all teenage mothers and over three-quarters of unmarried teen mothers began receiving welfare within five years of the birth of their first child." (National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, 1997)
Programs and services provided at Pathfinder Academy create better outcomes for our students.
