Northside Urban Pathways is a small public school serving approximately 300 students in grades 6 to 12. The mission of our school is to help every child find a pathway that leads toward a successful adult life in the city environment and beyond. They pledge to guide every child to acquire the academic competencies, the attitudes and the network of support relationships that will allow them to continue on that path after graduation. They are committed to creating an intercultural community where we learn together and change the conditions in which we live. Northside Urban Pathways is organized as a non-profit corporation and committed to operating in a completely non-sectarian manner.
Located in the heart of the Pittsburgh Cultural District, the school is housed in three floors of an office building.
