How to Explore High School Programs

Navigating the transition to high school can be overwhelming!

We want you to feel empowered to make a decision about your unique future by helping you explore your possibilities. The High School Pathfinder doesn't advise which path to take, but provides insights into choosing from the paths available.

The Pathfinder is easy to navigate and helps you explore high school programs using:

- your interests
- your location
- school quality

Based on the information you provide, the Pathfinder will suggest high school programs for you to explore in an easy side-by-side comparison.

Need help figuring out your interests?
The Pathfinder can help you identify interests, careers, strengths, and areas of growth through a personality assessment. You can use what you learn here to help better explore your high school possibilities.

High School Pathways (HSP) Program
The Pathfinder is part of Spark's High School Pathways (HSP) program. The HSP program offers high school transition and alumni support to 8th and 9th grade students so they can take action and feel equipped with the knowledge and resources to make the possibilities they've experienced real.

HSP students are
- assisted through the high school selection and application process
- able to assess their strengths, areas for growth and interests
- prepared for high school expectations
- connected with outside opportunities
- receive support through freshman year
