Learn Skills. Gain Confidence.
Each semester during PathwayConnect, students take a light courseload consisting of both academic and religious education. PathwayConnect courses are designed to help students learn basic skills and gain the confidence and abilities needed to succeed in college and in life.


More than just courses

In addition to taking academic and religion courses, PathwayConnect students also gather once each week at local institute buildings, church meetinghouses, or virtually through online groups where they participate in educational and leadership activities related to their courses, build lifelong friendships, and deepen testimonies of Jesus Christ.
