Accreditation

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.

You can be assured that a Whitmore School diploma is accepted by colleges and employers across the country, and even abroad.

 

Cognia (formerly AdvancED)
