Forest Trail Sports University is about to take over the old Barber-Scotia campus and open America’s first USCAA fully-accredited sports focused university.
Their website said degree offerings will include Master of Arts, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, associate and certificates in a variety of fields through distance learning at Waldorf University – a Higher Learning Commission accredited college based in Forest City, Iowa.
The university plans to field as many as 10 varsity sports this coming fall, including men’s and women’s baseball, soccer, basketball, and more.
Forest Trail now has about 200 student committed for this fall semester, including seven athletes who had previously committed to NCAA Division I schools, and the school is now anticipating enrollment of about 250 by the time the semester starts.
The school’s basketball team already has 30 games scheduled for this upcoming season with teams from the NCAA, NAIA and the USCAA.
