What is Accreditation and Why is Accreditation Important?
An accredited school system commits to continually hold high standards for its faculty, staff, leadership and board of advisors/directors to provide quality educational experiences for its students. When a student graduates from a nationally accredited high school, that student may freely apply to any accredited college or university in the nation. A graduate of an unaccredited school will not be considered for admission without also presenting a passing score of the GED, meaning that the high school diploma is not considered valid.
An accredited school is willingly held accountable to well-researched best practices regarding instruction, school environment, and evaluation procedures, ensuring students participate in quality educational programming.
When you start thinking about college or higher education, enrolling in an accredited school matters.
