Our accreditation enables us to offer eligible student-athletes the opportunity to earn high school or college credit upon completion of their program.
Through our Discovery for Credit Program, student-athletes have access to courses that will allow them to reflect upon many of the themes and topics explored during their travel program. Those in grades 6–12 at the time of travel can earn free elective high school credit upon successful completion of both the travel program and online course. Through our university partner, George Mason University, eligible student-athletes in grades 9-12 at the time of travel can also earn up to three college credits upon successful completion of both the travel program and online course.
Students have six months to complete their courses after travel. Our Curriculum and Academics team will evaluate student work, communicate directly with the student-athletes, and support their learning goals. Upon successful completion and processing of credits, a transcript may be ordered directly from George Mason University or WorldStrides. Student-athletes who earn credit with WorldStrides Sports will find this distinguishes them as online learners and gives them a jump-start on their path to a successful higher education experience.
The Leadership & Character coursework has been designed to encourage students to identify with the qualities related to leadership and character and to appreciate the related benefits.
The course content has students examine the difference between good performance and great performance; the degree to which people put the interests of others ahead of their own; willingness to do things for others without regard for what’s in it for them; ability to coach and mentor; and the ability to make decisions and recommendations that benefit the good of everyone and reflect various perspectives.
