Signum Fidei Pathway
This pathway is designed to serve students with learning differences who desire a faith-based education but who require support to address their educational goals. With an individualized curriculum and instruction, small student/teacher ratios, regular on-going learning assessments, and research-based literacy interventions, La Salle’s pathway philosophy embraces each child’s unique strengths and gifts and also provides a flexible, mobile, and dynamic program of study.
The Signum Fidei Pathway allows students to immerse themselves into La Salle's diverse community while also participating in a more sheltered and structured experience in the core classes. Students in the Signum Fidei Pathway share elective and extra-curricular opportunities with the greater student body but are enrolled in small English, math, and science courses. The curriculum, pace, and scope in these core classes may be modified to provide for the diverse learning needs of the students in the class, allowing La Salle to remain responsive and flexible for each child.
The Pathway model also includes support classes, peer assistants and tutors, individual lessons with our Instructional Coach, and before/after school homework help. La Salle maintains a partnership with North Clackamas School Districts to provide testing, eligibility, and services.
Enrollment in the Signum Fidei Pathway occurs through the regular admissions process.
