Academic Accreditation: A Unique Trails Wilderness Feature

Trails Carolina is unique among most wilderness programs in that our academic curriculum is accredited by AdvancEd.  This academic accreditation helps ensure successful transfer of academic work at Trails to a student’s next school.

AdvancED provides accreditation for Trails’ academic curriculum and also performs on-site reviews to ensure Trails maintains high standards.
