Application and Course Registration Policies
Closed Priority Registration
Closed priority registration period will be available for the leadership team, PATH teachers, and
current returning PATH families. Other families may submit their registration beforehand, but it will
not be processed until the end of closed registration. Leadership reserves the right to refuse a
student’s application due to misbehavior or unbiblical behavior from a previous year on the part of the student and/or parent, poor academic performance, habitual absenteeism, or failure to pay fees from the previous year. Notification of acceptance, refusal, or waiting list will be made within seven days of registration period.
Open registration period, which follows the closed registration, will be for new families to register for the remaining openings. These families may submit their registration beforehand, but it will not be processed until the end of closed registration. Returning PATH students may still apply but will no longer have priority over the new students. Notification of acceptance, refusal, or waiting list will be made within seven days of registration period. Applications will continue to be accepted throughout the summer, if there are any remaining openings.

Registration Processing and Acceptance
The student must be at least 12 years of age by Sept. 30 of this year to be eligible to apply.
- Consideration will be given to students that are 12 years of age by October 30th and have completed the 6th grade. Academic and behavioral level must be at the level of the students in the classroom, so as not to distract from the older students’ group learning environment.
- Portfolio or placement tests must be submitted for evaluation and approval. Please keep in mind that you will be required to pay for the entire course(es) if your child does not have the maturity or academic skills required to participate in the course(es).
- Registration can be in person to leadership or mailed to PATH PO Box 531 Milford, OH 45150.
- Checks are payable to PATH Milford. Fees and tuition deposits are nonrefundable, unless placed on the waiting list.
- Due to the Christian worldview perspective presented in the teaching, texts, and assignments in this program, carefully read and consider the statement of faith before signing.
- If the student is on any waiting list(s) for any course(s), then the tuition for the course(s) will be refunded; otherwise, all tuition is non-refundable.
- Register only for courses that you intend for your student to entirely complete. PATH contracts with teachers based on this intent.
- You will be responsible for full annual tuition if your student withdraws from an active class.
- CCP (College Credit Plus) students may tentatively register for classes by paying the non-refundable registration fee ($75.00/student). Students can save a spot in the classes they are interested in and let PATH know their final decision after they find out their CCP acceptance and schedule.
- Due to the group classroom setting and academic pace of PATH, register students for ability appropriate courses.
- Acceptance for any class is dependent on a student passing the previous course in that subject.
- Any incoming 8th-12th grade student that did not take a subject at PATH the prior school year will be required to take a placement test if the teacher requires one. If a student does not pass the test to be placed in a desired course, the student may register for a lower level course, or tuition for that course will be reimbursed.
- During the summer, students enrolled in English and Math may be assigned assignments to be turned in on the first day of class.
- Leadership approval, placement test and/or portfolio must be satisfied for a student to have registration accepted for a course that is for older students.
- Academic and behavioral level must be at the level of the students in the classroom so as not to distract from the other students’ group learning environment. Keep in mind that you will be required to pay for the entire course(es) if your child needs to withdraw because he/she does not have the maturity or academic skills required to participate in the course(es).
