Academic Pathways Program at Iona
The Academic Pathways program, formerly known as ASSET, provides elementary and middle school students with a positive atmosphere that encourages a sense of self-¬worth and achievement. College mentors work on an individual basis with the students to develop a relationship that ensures learning.
