The Ogden Standard-Examiner reports that the $13.9 million facility, named Pathways High School, is being designed to give students interested a leg up in starting tech careers.
“Ogden School District has aggressively sought additional opportunities for our students to enhance their college and career readiness,” Ogden School Superintendent Luke Rasmussen said. “Pathways High School represents a significant step forward in creating access to highly sought skills and certifications.”
Pathways High School, measuring 17,575 square feet, will be built on a vacant space in the southeast corner of the college campus and will be finished in time for the 2024-25 school year. Many Ogden high schoolers — around 900 per year — already take classes at the college. The new facility is meant to make it easier for them to take classes.
The district says Pathways High School will give students “unprecedented access” to the technical college's programs and enable high schoolers to create more individualized programs.
