Pathfinder Hopkins School is a tuition-free, four-year, after-school and full-time summer program serving students from the summer before 6th grade until the summer before 9th grade. Pathfinder students attend New Haven public and parochial schools and want enrichment above and beyond what their schools already offer.
Pathfinder provides a tuition-free, four-year program of comprehensive, rigorous academic preparation and high school options counseling to high potential middle school students from New Haven public and parochial schools.
Pathfinder is also a workshop in teacher education for high school and college students who serve as teaching fellows assisting professional teaching faculty, teaching non-core academic classes, and serving as mentors to students.
Pathfinder prepares students with the academic confidence, knowledges, and skills required for academic success at the highest caliber college preparatory high schools and high school programs.
