Pioneer Pathfinders

  • Pioneer Pathfinder LogoWho are we?

    The Pioneer Pathfinder Academy is a Stillwater High School program that supports young adults aged 18-22 with disabilities.

    What do we do?

    The Pathfinder Academy provides opportunities and exposure for our "interns" in four areas:
    • Independent living
    • Community participation
    • Trade skills
    • Social-emotional awareness

    Why do we do it?

    Our mission is to build on our interns' attributes to provide purpose, confidence, responsibility, and self-advocacy.
