Assumption Pathway School (APS) is a Catholic educational institution whose student cohort comprise those whose PSLE results do not enable them to progress to a mainstream secondary school. Students at APS therefore undergo an alternative curriculum that focuses on vocational skills and which prepares them for further education 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). Every Student a CARER, Achieving Personal Success In line with the mission of St Louis Marie de Montfort, APS believes that every child has unique gifts and abilities. The APS vision of ‘Every Student a CARER, Achieving Personal Success’ articulates the School’s desire to provide for each student the necessary opportunities to develop into confident, caring and compassionate individuals and to bring out their unique potential and the right values for the benefit of their families and communities. The word CARER represents the school’s five core values: Care, Adaptability.
