Higher Education is a Right not just for the privileged.
Pathways to Higher Education identifies talented but financially underprivileged public high school students and equips them with the necessary academic and soft skills to nurture them to become Filipino leaders who will serve their country and transform the nation – and they are called Trailblazers.
The Programs in Pathways are directed towards not only personal success in the academe, but in creating socially relevant Filipino citizens as well. Pathways networks with schools, government institutions, businesses, organizations, and individuals to help young students and their families prepare for college life, and to eventually graduate and become responsible Filipino leaders.
Pathways to Higher Education identifies talented but financially underprivileged public high school students from Marikina and Quezon City, and equips them with the necessary academic and soft skills to nurture them to become Filipino leaders who will serve their country and transform the nation – and they are called Trailblazers.
To date, we have seen more than 200 Pathways participants graduate from college and give back to their communities as they work in the different fields of business, academe, government and social development.

Talented but underprivileged
To be able to select students who are academically competitive yet financially underprivileged, Pathways follows a set of screening criteria for its participants. There are three (3) main components:
- Assessment of the students’ qualifications in terms of aptitude and academic achievements
- Assessment of the students’ personal values and character
- Determine the respective families’ socio-economic condition and willingness to support the children’s education.
Runners from all over the Philippines and abroad completed 60KM, 165KM or 300KM in 31 days.
The goal of the event is to raise funds to sponsor a scholar of Pathways to Higher Education.
On July 21, 2017, VirtualRacePH Founders Archie and Joric visited the office of Pathways to Higher Education and officially turned over the proceeds of the virtual race event.
At the end of the virtual race, the event proceeds amounted to Php 95,000.00.
