The Pathways Academy programs are free of charge with funding support from the Arkansas Division of Workforce Services. The comprehensive programs target students enrolled in Arkansas public schools in five pilot site areas including right here in Hot Springs, as well as Jonesboro, Springdale, Pine Bluff and Little Rock with plans to expand statewide over the next four years.

The Junior STEM Academies are designed to immerse young scholars in a world of science that focuses on health while incorporating technology, engineering and mathematics. In addition to STEM-H, the program integrates concepts relating to mental health and wellness such as cyber-bullying and emotional intelligence.
