About APS

Assumption Pathway School (APS) is a Catholic educational institution, which helps students who are unable to access mainstream schools to have an education. Students at APS therefore undergo an alternative curriculum that focuses on vocational skills which prepares them for further education and workforce readiness at the Institute of Technical Education (ITE).  

The school was first known as St Joseph’s Trade School when it was started in 1938 by the religious congregation, the Montfort Brothers of St Gabriel. This congregation has its origins in France and was founded by a priest, St. Louis Marie de Montfort (1673-1716), who dedicated his whole life to serving the disadvantaged. The School underwent several transformations in curriculum and change of name before becoming Assumption Pathway School in 2009. APS is governed by the St. Gabriel’s Foundation, with support given by both the Ministry of Education and the Institute of Technical Education (ITE).
