What is accreditation?
Accreditation is a method of quality assurance that identifies schools their adherence to a particular set of educational standards. Accreditation helps to drive student achievement and the ongoing improvement of an educational institution. Accreditation not only examines an institution’s organizational effectiveness, it also takes a close look at the entire scope of the institution to see how well it is suited to meet the needs of its students. The accreditation process, which is vigorous and stringent, allows the institution to examine itself and its adherence to its mission.
