Pathway to College

All classrooms at Urban Pathways College Charter School K-5 (UPCS K-5) cultivate Pathways to College for each student through our Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU’s) classroom community program.  Each classroom has “adopted” a HBCU.  Through this program, students learn about their HBCU’s history; programs of study and careers associated with them; and school culture with mascots, cheers, school colors, & school spirit.  Through learning and demonstrating Covey’s 7 Habits, our students’ character is being built with essential skills to be a productive lifelong learner.

These habits will help the students succeed in the 21st Century through their journey to post-secondary education at the college level.  Students are recognized monthly during our First Friday Celebrations for demonstrating these habits in their daily lives at UPCS K-5.

As students engage in our First Friday Celebrations, classes show their school spirit for their HBCU’s by performing cheers and chants.  Urban Pathways College Charter School K-5 aspires to instill a love for learning in each student as they take steps to becoming tomorrow’s leaders in their Pathway to College.
