WorldStrides is independently accredited for K-12 education by regional accrediting bodies across the nation, including:
Our accreditation allows us to offer high school academic credit to students and continuing education credit to teachers. And through our partnership with the University of California – San Diego, we are able to offer high school students traveling on our Perspectives programs three free college credits. On applicable Capstone programs, we also offer additional university credit to college students.
