Trails Carolina has undergone a rigorous renewal process and their academic accreditation with AdvancEd has been extended for another five years.
Trails Carolina, an East Coast based wilderness therapy program for students ages 10-17, is the only wilderness program in the country where students take part in academic programming in a traditional classroom setting while working with a certified teacher. “The classroom is where many of our students struggle socially, behaviorally and due to learning differences. Creating an academic experience closer to what students receive in the ‘real world’ enables our students to be better prepared to transition successfully back to their home school,” explained Director of Admissions and Outreach Julia Andrick.
While at Trails, students who are in high school can earn three credits and middle schoolers earn almost a full half year of credit. Students graduate from Trails Carolina with a transferable academic transcript.
“Academics is often an area where students struggle and where progress can be made,” says Elizabeth Chancellor, Academic Director of Trails Carolina. “Our goal is to renew students’ confidence in their ability to learn and prepare them to re-enter their ‘real world’ school classroom as functional and critical learners.”
