Accreditation is designed to help educational institutions boost their ongoing performance efforts for the benefit of their students. AdvancED insists on a relentless pursuit of excellence – for itself and for the institutions it accredits. This ethic of excellence ensures that institutions will find rich benefits from accreditation and that parents can confidently make informed decisions about their children's education, knowing their child's school is accredited. Accreditation matters because our students deserve the highest level of educational excellence possible.
Students and their parents benefit from accreditation in the following ways:
Experience ease in transferring credits from one school to another.
Gain greater access to federal loans, scholarships, post-secondary education and military programs that require students to attend an accredited institution.
Benefit from their institution or educational system’s commitment to raising student performance and accountability.
