What is accreditation and why is it important?

Accreditation is awarded to educational institutions that meet high standards of providing quality education programs and services. A team of teachers and administrators from other schools review all aspects of the education, including curriculum, teachers, and administration. Accreditation is not a one-time event. Accredited schools must self-evaluate annually and commit to continuous improvement.

This is important to you. You can be assured that a Whitmore School diploma is accepted by colleges and universities across the country, and even abroad.



Three regional accrediting organizations merged to form AdvancED, the world’s largest and most recognized accrediting organization recognized by the US Department of Education. (SACS CASI, NCA-CASI, and NWAC). AdvancED serves 32,000 schools and school systems enrolling more than 20 million students in the United States and 70 other countries.

CompuHigh / Whitmore School is nationally accredited by AdvanceEd, and regionally accredited by NCA-CASI.
