In a bid to provide student-athletes with a major boost, Forest Trail Academy will formally be merging with Thomasville Preparatory Academy and their founder Delaney Rudd effective immediately. This merger is set to benefit student-athletes in several ways including spectacular furnished housing spread over 30 acres of land, a state-of-the-art fitness center, additional sports offerings, and a quality, accredited education that is necessary to assist student-athletes in their quest for SCHOLARSHIPS.
