Phoenix, AZ - Blueprint Education and Soltreks, an outdoor therapeutic program provider, are excited to announce a new partnership that will enable students completing Soltreks' adventure programs to earn academic credits.

Soltreks is the only outdoor behavioral health program of its kind in the Upper Midwest, serving teenagers, young adults, and their families. Using its expertise in combining outdoor therapeutic programs with academics, Blueprint Education has taken Soltreks' unique content and designed a customized curriculum that offers participants academic credits upon completion of a Soltreks program.

"Some of our students have academic challenges," states Lorri Hanna, Founder, President and Executive Director of the Two Harbors, MN.-based Soltreks. "With the ability to customize and individualize their educational needs through our unique curriculum, students learn to build upon their strengths while recognizing their limitations, away from a traditional school setting," she says.

Soltreks' programs target teens and young adults facing challenges with relationships, personal accountability, unhealthy patterns, difficulty with decisions and transitions, loss and depression, learning and attention, and low self esteem. To enable these young people to find their natural talents and abilities while developing better communication skills and self-confidence, Soltreks provides several program services, including one-on-one treks; small group, family and specialty treks. Programs are conducted at locations near Lake Superior and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, MN or in the southwest.

Students completing Soltreks' programs will be able to transfer their academic credits back to a traditional school, or they can choose to continue their studies through the variety of distance learning options available through Blueprint Education.

"Our curriculum was founded on the value of promoting health and wellness by recognizing our students' individuality while cultivating their physical, emotional, and creative self. What an honor for Soltreks to be able to validate our unique facilitation, and our students' efforts and accomplishments by granting academic credit," states Hanna.

Blueprint Education is a non-profit organization that has been helping students succeed since 1969. Services offered by Blueprint Education include distance learning, curriculum design, and alternative education. Blueprint Education's programs and courses meet the high quality standards of the NCA Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement, CITA, and the NCAA.
