Focusing On Academic Success

Summer Journey’s Pathway to Promotion is a new, invitation-based program for Catholic School students that gives them an opportunity to establish a better academic standing over the summer months. If your child has been nominated to participate in this program, they are required to both attend and pass Pathway to Promotion in order for promotion to the next grade in Fall 2024 or for graduation.

While a part of Summer Journey, Pathway to Promotion program is built around a rigorous math and literacy curriculum, which focuses on key skills and concepts tailored to each grade level. This targeted approach ensures the effective development of essential competencies during the summer break.
