Apply for Virtual Learning at Pathfinder School of Innovation

JCPS will provide virtual learning to students in grades K-12 beginning in the 2021-2022 school year. Pathfinder School of Innovation is a new school for middle and high school students. The elementary virtual learning option is a part of the school but this option has only been approved for one year.

Students will have a rigorous curriculum and be held to the same high academic standards as their on-campus peers. Students will not have to attend virtually for the entire school day, but there will be a structured schedule for synchronous (live) or asynchronous (on-demand) learning. Students will be able to receive Special Education and English Second Language (ESL) services. Devices will be provided to students who need them.

Students will be accepted based on the availability of space for the remainder of the 2021-22 school year. Families will be notified when a student is accepted.
