About Us


Pathways is what school should be: a positive and friendly learning environment where students are excited to learn, and where open communication, engaging teachers, bright classrooms and a differentiated curriculum encourage students to thrive.

A child's school should be an extension of their family, providing a safe environment in which they can explore ideas and feelings.  It is our aim to direct each child to achieve their personal best by allowing them to develop at their own pace. 

Pathways is a unique educational experience. We offer a safe, supportive school community with small class sizes to allow for individualized educational programing, respecting each child’s abilities and pace for mastering new learning concepts. Pathways curriculum is a blend of Montessori and traditional teaching methods. Our teachers are without exception, dedicated and caring with the same goal - "Help your child believe in themselves." 

We specialize in the early learning years from toddlers to Lower Elementary; offering French, Music and Art classes.



We’ve MOVED!

Pathways Academy is conveniently located at 6642 St. Thomas More Drive, Niagara Falls Ontario (off Dorchester Road near the intersection of Dorchester and Dunn Street).

Our new facility has a many bright & welcoming classrooms, a gymnasium, library, art and music room. In addition, there is a fully fenced outdoor property for the children to enjoy.



Within the Niagara Region, the obvious need for a unique and privatized learning program became apparent, specifically in the Niagara Falls community. The opportunity for a school to offer a blend of both Montessori and Traditional teaching concepts emerged as Pathways was established in 2000.

Dedicated staff with sound expertise, and extensive backgrounds in all areas of education have been and continue to be the backbone of our school. The following video shows clips from our first location in Chippawa. Although the rooms are different the approach to learning emphasised in this video remains the same.
