Accreditation is an important process and assures parents that an independent, objective peer review of the school has been performed. It reassures parents that New Life Academy has a plan in place to achieve our vision, attain our objectives and is focused on continual improvement. New Life Academy is dually accredited by our regional accreditation body (Cognia, formerly AdvancEd) and by our specialist accreditation, ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International) through December 31, 2023. This assures that New Life Academy meets both the academic standards required of the AdvancEd association and the Christian standards are met by the ACSI association.
Why do schools go through accreditation?
- Accrediting organizations such as ACSI/Cognia provide state-recognized certification that a school is a trustworthy institution of learning.
- To develop, implement and pursue plans that lead to improved student learning and to ensure that a school is fulfilling its vision and mission and has a plan for continuous improvement.
- Successful accreditation processes encourage schools to manage change through regular assessment, planning, implementing, monitoring and reassessment for the short and long term.
