The Pathfinder School: Traverse City Community School


Honoring wonder, fostering friendships, building understanding!

The Pathfinder School was officially founded in 1972 by Athur and Nancy Baxter with a commitment of a group of teachers from Interlochen, The Leelanau School and Traverse City Public Schools. The school began providing kindergarten through twelfth grade on a historic estate intertwined on beautiful wooded grounds after refurbishing the original buildings and constructing new buildings.

For a complete history, Art and Nancy have orchestrated the definitive and fun history in "Blaze A Trail: The History of Pathfinder." Click here to read an introduction and purchase the book from Hawthorne Publishing.
