The Trails Way
Each year Trails welcomes new youth to embark on their four-year journey. In addition, an optional fifth year is offered with the Leadership-in-Training (LIT) programme, where participants have the opportunity to further develop leadership and life skills.
Over 90% of our youth complete high school and go on to attend post-secondary education.
High School Credits
Students who remain in the programme for the full 5 years can earn up to 3 credits in outdoor education. Trails has permission from the Ministry of Education to grant these credits as a Privately Inspected School:
