These half credits could be in physical education, foods, interpersonal communication, health and fitness, English (elective credit only), and outdoor education. Academic oversight is administered by our sister program, Discovery Academy.

RedCliff Ascent students will receive an official academic transcript. This means they can earn credits through a nationally accredited institution.dited institution.
Students acquire credits at an individual pace. This pace is based on their level of involvement in the wilderness therapy program. The flexibility also provides more motive for teens working to achieve specific progress markers along their developmental journey.
Academic offerings are not the primary reason why families choose RedCliff Ascent wilderness therapy. However, the chance to earn school credit is an added value to teens and their parents. RedCliff students can typically earn as much as three credits in 60 days.
