Lone Star College lifePATH® is a four-year comprehensive model of post-secondary educational opportunities for students who have disabilities that affect executive functioning. lifePATH focuses on academic readiness, social expectations, and career exploration. Students are selected as part of a cohort the first two years and take classes together on the foundation path. After two years, students can exit the cohort and pursue other certificate or degree programs offered at Lone Star College with wrap around supports by choosing the academic path. Students who remain in the cohort will spend the last two years earning the Occupational and Life Skills Associate degree (OLSA), as well as the Business Operations Certificate.
