The Center for Educational Growth Earns Cognia Accreditation

The Center for Educational Growth has earned accreditation from Cognia™, a nonprofit organization that provides quality assurance for schools, school districts and education service providers.

Cognia, formerly AdvancED, nationally recognizes districts that meet rigorous standards focused on productive learning environments, equitable resource allocation that meets the needs of learners and effective leadership.

Earning accreditation from the Cognia Global Accreditation Commission means that the school is accredited and that The Center for Educational Growth is recognized across the nation as a school that meets Cognia standards of quality and maintains a commitment to continuous improvement.

“School accreditation as conferred by the Cognia Global Accreditation Commission provides The Center for Educational Growth a nationally recognized mark of quality for our school,” said Executive Director Sandra Cannon. “It demonstrates to our community our commitment to excellence, our openness to external review and feedback, and our desire to be the best we can be on behalf of the students we serve.”


To earn Cognia accreditation, a school must also 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.

The Center for Educational Growth is currently accepting students for open enrollment in both virtual and in-person school settings through the 2022 semester and will begin enrollment for the spring semester on Dec. 20.
