"Students take classes tailored to their [pathway], which helps them navigate their way to greater success – no matter what they choose to do after high school graduation. The aim of the program is to show students the relevance of what they’re learning in the classroom, whether they want to attend a two-year college, a four-year university or go straight into the world of work. Students will begin to learn about potential careers in elementary and middle school so that they are ready to choose a pathway once they reach high school." GA DOE
