Accreditation is an important validation for any educational institution. It’s an oversight that assures students, parents, and the community of a program’s ability to meet the requirements and assurances necessary to award academic credit that is worthwhile and meaningful according to an established set of standards and practices.
Academic programs all have unique needs and visions for their institutions, but all are dedicated to their students, parents and communities, all are focused on learner advancement while using continuous improvement as the guiding force.
School improvement is a journey and not all education institutions start or end at the same place.
To be considered “Fully Accredited” is a 3-5 year process of continual improvement.
With a balanced, systemic approach combining Standards, stakeholder feedback and student performance to measure quality programs, relationships and results, Advance-Ed’s systems-oriented Accreditation Process helps institutions make the most of their talents and resources. Their process aligns accreditation with accountability, emphasizing learner outcomes when evaluating institutional quality.
