The Pathways School – Edgewood

The Pathways School - Edgewood integrates academic, therapeutic, and vocational services through school-based and community-based programming for up to 38 high school students, ages 15-21 years, with emotional and behavioral disabilities. The program is designed to allow for flexibility in how services are provided. Depending upon individual student needs, programming may be focused within a classroom setting or primarily take place in community settings. The school-based program offers a more traditional classroom focus. In the community-based program, students are transported by their Community Support Staff member to receive programming within a variety of other settings. All students are prepared to successfully transition from high school to the world of work. Opportunities include work crew, job shadowing, and internships, in addition to an emphasis on gaining independent living skills.

The course offerings allow students to earn a Maryland High School Diploma or a High School Certificate of Program Completion. This program offers credit courses for students through individual and small group instruction following county curriculum. Students are prepared to transition into the next phase of their lives. For some, this may be to prepare for a less restrictive secondary school placement or to take the GED test in the future, and for others, it may be to prepare for post-secondary education, career training, or the world of work.
