Forest Trail Academy Product Review

Forest Trail Academy is an accredited K-12 online school.  The school provides online programs/core courses that are:

  • rigorously academic and vocationally oriented
  • asynchronous (an asynchronous course is a course without a set start date, where students can start at different times and work at their own pace).
  • structured but flexible
  • student-centered
  • attentive to the various learning styles

In addition to the core courses, Forest Trail Academy offers credit recovery courses, AP courses, dual credit courses (I LOVE dual credit!), summer school courses, NCAA approved curriculum (perfect for your student athlete) and more.

Course length can range from 45 days to 12 months. Students can take a half (.5) credit course, or as many as six credits at any given time (a full load is classified as six credits).  If your student needs to take more than 6 credits, s/he will have to get approval from the school to do so.
