Dr. Gerald L. Paist

We have celebrated over 40 years of providing quality technical education to the communities of Belchertown, Granby, Hardwick, Monson, New Braintree, Oakham, Palmer, Ware, and Warren. During that period, we have grown to over 650 students, built a major addition, increased our offerings to include 15 fields, and broadened our service area to more than 25 communities. We currently are a school of choice.

If you enjoy using your mind in an applied learning environment, if you are fascinated by imagination and discovery, if you like to create - then Pathfinder is the ideal place for you. We have a remarkably talented and committed faculty who take a personal interest in each individual student. We have the resources to prepare you for college in all of our areas, and we offer a solid technical and academic preparation to directly enter the world of work. The school is well known for enabling each and every student to reach his or her full potential. The choice is yours, but the responsibility is ours.

We are proud of our graduates who have distinguished themselves in area businesses, industries, the military, and in college. Leaders in our communities continually point to the contribution that our students have made to the local economy. In our judgment, our graduates are better citizens because they attended Pathfinder, and our communities are better places in which to live and work because of Pathfinder's presence.

We invite you to look carefully at Pathfinder in furthering your educational career goals. Vocational and technical education has undergone many dramatic changes in the past few years. We hope you will want to become a part of them.
