The SUWS Adolescent and Youth Programs curriculum is accredited by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI)
NCA CASI is an accreditation division of AdvancED. (AdvancED is the world’s largest education community, serving more than 27,000 public and private schools and districts across the United States and in 69 countries that educate over 15 million students.)
The school credits that a student earns at SUWS are recognized by schools, colleges, and universities globally. Through AdvancED’s reciprocal agreements with sister accrediting organizations, students can continue their educational goals in the United States or around the world.
The SUWS Adolescent and Youth Programs curriculum is divided into five academic areas:
• Healthy Living
• Psychology of Daily Living
• Physical Education
• Personal Development
• First Aid
Each academic area is aligned to Idaho Content Standards and students will be awarded high school credits for work completed. Evidence of academic performance will be demonstrated through curriculum completion, journaling, specific writing assignments, mileage logs, and length of stay in program.
High school credits will be awarded in accordance to proposed requirements obtained from Deputy Superintendent of Education for the State of Idaho.
The proposal set forth states one (1) credit hour will consist of sixty (60) actual classroom hours. Therefore, the number of credits issued to a SUWS student depends on the length of stay in the program. A transcript of credits will be provided upon graduation.
