School Overview

Great Path Academy is an inter-district, magnet high school located on the campus of Manchester Community College. As a magnet school our primary goals are to promote an academically rigorous program and to reduce racial and economic isolation by recruiting a diverse learning community, which draws students from various towns. In addition to celebrating diversity, our magnet school’s curriculum is based on the school model known as “middle college high schools.”

Middle college high schools are part of a nationally growing trend to establish high schools on college campuses. The purpose of a middle college high school is to bridge the gap between secondary and post-secondary education by immersing high school students into the college community, as well as to provide access to college coursework.

Students at Great Path Academy are provided access to a full range of tuition free MCC courses, along with articulated high school courses to earn college credit. At Great Path Academy, students are provided with the opportunity to graduate with a high school diploma and Associate Degree from MCC.

Great Path Academy is committed to providing innovative learning that supports an environment where each student can become college ready through developing the values of self-discipline: to be respectful, to demonstrate effective work habits; to be responsible, and the life skills; to be safe, in order to achieve success.
