Student's are often asked "What do I want to be when I grow up?"  Lipscomb Academy has asked the question of "how can we help students meet their future goals". 

Path Components: 

  • Lipscomb Academy Courses
  • Lipscomb University Courses & Facilities 
  • Career-Focused Experiential Learning

The traditional path to graduation is extended to every student in high school; however, students are given the opportunity to join a Path of Distinction. While flexible in course choices, each path has set requirements to complete which extend beyond the traditional graduation requirements. As part of the high school self-exploration process, students may explore various paths or even change paths resulting in the benefit of realizing one’s affinities or aversions prior to declaring a major in college. This individualized approach allows the coursework to align with the specific aspirations of the student and adeptly prepares the student for both college and his/her chosen career path.

Letter from the Director of Strategic Initiatives

"I’m excited that Lipscomb Academy believes helping students reach their goals is extremely important.  These personalized paths will help students as they begin to prepare for future careers.  Individual student goals are important and we love partnering with our students to help them achieve their goals.  I can’t wait to see what great things God has in store for our students!”
