• How do I attend PATHS?

    Students wishing to attend PATHS must meet minimum entry requirements and submit a valid Choice Application.  Please note that  while the School District of Osceola County closes the Choice window in February of each year, PATHS accepts Choice Applications through the start of school in August each year. 


    Applicant Criteria

    • Minimum of 2.0 GPA and current grades of C or higher in all core classes. 
    • No major discipline issues
    • Positive Attendance Record
    • Favorable Teacher Recommendations


    Applicants who are new or are returning to the Osceola County Public School District are required to bring official transcripts from their current school. 

    Applicants under expulsion or under court ordered supervision will not be considered for entry until satisfactory completion of all requirements placed on the student from the expulsion or court ordered supervision are satisfied.


    Students who do not have a 7th Grade FSA Reading score or who have taken Algebra 1 but do not have an Algebra 1 EOC score must contact Victoria Funk-Summers to set up a time to take a basic skills test. Students must score at current grade level in Math & Reading.

               To schedule a basic skills test, please E-mail Victoria Funk- Summers at victoria.funksummers@osceolaschools.net.

    If you are a current private school student or a student from out of state, you may contact VFS to set up a time to take a skills test. All other applicants who are within the state of Florida are not eligible to test as we use the Florida state assessments as part of the application process. 

    Students submitting their Choice application to attend PATHS during the open SDOC Choice Window should do so by following directions on the SDOC Choice Homepage

    PATHS does not accept 11th and 12th grade students due to being at capacity.

    PATHS continues to accept Choice applications after the SDOC Choice Window closes.
