Saint Albert’s academic pathways align recommended programs of study with individual families’ visions of success. While the pathways provide recommended courses of study, no student is obligated, or excluded, from following a specific pathway.
In most cases, students will choose a pathway based upon their goals, then confer with the counselor, teachers, or college representatives to adjust their course selections to fit individual abilities and interests.
The standards of the Diocese of Des Moines have been written, reviewed, and revised as a collaborative effort between the Diocesan Schools Office and diocesan administrators and teachers.
