DON'T MISS THE EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT!

If you have already re-enrolled, thank you! We are looking forward to serving your family in the 2017-18 school year! If you have not re-enrolled yet, then you may find this reminder helpful. You're invited to save $10 off of your family's 2017-18 tuition with the Early Bird Discount available until July 31, 2017!


Re-Enrolling is Quick and Easy!

  • Re-Enrolling Families only need to submit a Family Update form (one per family) This can be done online or via hard copy.
  • A signed CSEF form is also required for any families who have moved during the 2016-17 school year OR will be enrolling any new students 6-17 years of age or who will be turning 6 by the end of 2017.
    (Look for the Printable CSEF link at the bottom of this message.)


Families can REGISTER and PAY ONLINE with the FORM LINK that was emailed to your family in early June. The form that was emailed to you will reflect the $10 Early Bird Discount until Monday, July 31, 2017. This form can only be used by re-enrolling families. This form cannot be shared with other Pathways' families or prospective Pathways' families.

P.S. Some families have reported finding their email in the junk mail box. However, if you have changed emails or did not receive one, please email an administrator at pathwaysacademy@hotmail.com to request your form to be resent.
Hurry! The Early Bird Discount Ends on July 31!

OR
Pick up a packet from the Resource Center during Thursday office hours from Noon-4pm.

August 17 is also the date of the Pathways' Family Activities' Kick-Off from 11am-1pm at the Factory, so the Resource Center will not be open on this date!

Area Homeschool Families are Invited to Join the Pathways' Stepping Stones Associate Family Program

Families who are not in need of a legal covering (all children under 6 years old) and families enrolled in other area cover schools are invited to join Pathways Academy as associate family members.

The mission of the Stepping Stones Associate Family program is to inform, encourage, and support local families, especially families with preschoolers who plan to home school when their children reach mandatory age; prospective families who are prayerfully considering homeschooling in the future, and local homeschool families who are seeking social interaction through the clubs, field trips, and activities offered by Pathways Academy throughout the school year.

Associate membership will allow attendance at Pathways’ field trips and events and our annual Kick-Off. Families may also choose to become members of the Pathways Academy Service Clubs- JR Beta (4th-8th), SR Beta (9th -12th), K-Kids (1st-5th), Builder’s Club (6th-8th) or Key Club (9th-12th) and American Heritage Girls (1st-12th). However, please note that Club registration fees are not included in the Associate Family fee. Families are also invited to join our Facebook Pages, our private Yahoo Group, and utilize our school website for homeschool information, advice, and support.

To join, click the link below to print the registration form and the Family Liability Release Form (which can usually be found on the back side of this registration form) - http://tinyurl.com/2017-18SteppingStonesfamily

Submit the forms along with your $25 membership fee (per family) to:
by Mail: Pathways Academy, P.O. Box 411 Gadsden, AL 35902
OR
In Person at Pathways Academy. School office hours are Noon-4pm on Thursday afternoons (except during the months of June & December and pre-posted holidays)

SUBMIT YOUR STEPPING STONES' MEMBERSHIP FORM BY AUGUST 31 TO RECEIVE A $5 DISCOUNT!
Please note: Membership in the Stepping Stones Associate Family Program WILL NOT fulfill the legal requirements of a church covering. Alabama state law requires all children, 6-17 years of age, be enrolled with a church school, private school, or public school.
