What are the benefits to my children attending an accredited school?
Students who attend a school accredited by SACS/AdvancED can rest assured that the school is committed to raising student performance and held accountable for improving student learning on a continual basis.
Accreditation means that students have:
- Qualified teachers who are continually working to improve their practices and teaching methods in order to increase student performance
- Access to a rich, diverse, and sound curriculum
- Access to a range of student activities and support services
- Transferability of credits from school to school
- Greater access to federal loans, scholarships, post-secondary education, and military programs that require accreditation
The school credits that students earn at a SACS/AdvancED accredited school 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.
What does accreditation mean to me as a parent?
A school’s commitment to accreditation assures parents and the community that the school is focused on raising student achievement, providing a safe and enriching learning environment, and maintaining an efficient and effective operation. An accredited school adheres to high-quality standards based on the latest research and successful professional practices.
SACS/AdvancED accreditation means that your school has opened its doors to review and support from an organization bringing 100 years of experience in improving educational quality.
