Forest Trail Academy is registered with the Florida Department of Education and is fully accredited by the National Association of Private and Home Schools (N.A.P.H.S.) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Accreditation programs and School Improvement (SACS CASI).

These affiliations mean our courses are transferable to other schools nationwide from Kindergarten to 12th grade.

While the full-time K-12th grade programs (4 to 6 credits/classes) are still the best option both academically and financially for most families, we recognize that there may be good reasons why a student may wish to take only a course or two with us: credit recovery, summer school, accelerated credits, electives, foreign languages, etc.

We are pleased to offer our courses on an individual basis both online and correspondence (books). Both programs offer academic records. Forest Trail Academy is simply making these courses available individually outside of the full-time program.

Students taking individual courses with Forest Trail Academy who are not enrolled in our full-time, or diploma program are not eligible to graduate from Forest Trail Academy or receive a high school diploma.

Students in twelfth (12th) grade must complete 25% of their courses at Forest Trail Academy in order to attain a high school diploma.

Students enrolled in our individual courses should seek approval from their public/private school.

Generally we allow up to two (2) courses of individual credits per semester.
