We’re an actual school We’re a school, too.

WorldStrides is accredited by educational bodies across the country, and we have a dedicated Curriculum and Academics Department—this means we're an actual school (we just don't have walls!). As a school, we can offer students high school and college credit, and teachers free professional development.

We’re an actual school Give yourselves some credit

Our accreditation as a school allows us to offer free college credit for student travel. It's a great boost to student portfolios, and a competitive advantage when applying to college. To say thanks to our teachers leading the program, we also offer free professional development and graduate credit.  Read More

L.E.A.P to learn Our learning difference

Our trademarked approach to learning—LEAP—actively involves students in what they're seeing and doing. This active engagement between students, the places they visit, and their Course Leaders allows students (and teachers) to absorb more and build their knowledge and social skills.
