After years of school review, streamlining our processes, fortifying our internal structure, and evaluating our curriculum and extracurricular programming, Veritas formally received FULL ACCREDITATION in October of 2022. Thank you to all those who worked to make this a reality for our students!
Accreditation with Cognia™ Global Network sets our school apart by adding credence and accountability to what was already a stellar university-model program! Cognia, formerly AdvancED, nationally recognized districts that meet rigorous standards focused on productive learning environments, effective leadership, and resources that meet the needs of learners. To earn Cognia accreditation, a school district also must implement a continuous process of improvement, and submit to internal and external review. Schools in good standing can maintain their accreditation for a five-year term.
Dr. Mark A. Elgart, president and CEO of Cognia, stated, “Cognia Accreditation is a rigorous process that focuses the entire school and its community on the primary goal of preparing lifelong learners in engaging environments where all students can flourish. Veritas Christian Academy is to be commended for demonstrating that it has met high standards, and is making progress on key indicators that impact student learning.”
Congratulations to all faculty, staff, and students for this great achievement!
