Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision that can have a significant impact on their future. While there are many factors to consider, one of the most important is accreditation.
An accredited school is one that has been evaluated and approved by an external agency. Accreditation ensures that a school meets or exceeds specific educational standards.
At Classical Christian Academy, we understand the importance of accreditation and have proudly maintained accreditation for over 18 years.
“Accreditation makes us better,” explained Amy Davis, CCA’s founder and principal. “It keeps us accountable, gives us a network of other schools we can go to for best practices, and ensures we meet or exceed Florida’s educational requirements and nationwide standards.”
Why is accreditation so crucial when selecting a school?
Accreditation reflects our dedication to providing the best education possible. By going through the rigorous accreditation process, we demonstrate our commitment to maintaining the highest standards of educational excellence.
Accreditation holds us accountable to continuous improvement. By continuously evaluating ourselves and making necessary changes, we can ensure that our students receive the best education possible. The accreditation process holds us accountable to that and helps keep us on our mission. This means that we are always striving to improve and provide our students with the best possible learning experience.
Accreditation informs both colleges, and employers of our commitment to excellence. Accreditation is important for both college-bound and career-minded students alike. An accredited diploma is recognized by higher-learning institutions, and employers as a sign of a high quality education that checks all the boxes.
Cindy Prechtel, CCA’s guidance counselor, said, “when students have accredited diplomas from accredited schools, they will likely endure less scrutiny during the college application process since higher-learning institutions understand accreditation means the quality of our program has been evaluated and proven – especially when the accreditation is from reputable, nationwide organizations.”
At Classical Christian Academy, we hold accreditation from FCCPSA, Cognia, and NCPSA, which are three highly respected accrediting agencies both in the state of Florida, and nationally. This provides assurance of our commitment to delivering top-quality education and gives parents peace of mind when choosing a school for their child.
Accreditation is a crucial factor to consider when selecting a school for your child, and at CCA, we have been accredited for nearly two decades. We are committed to delivering exceptional education, ensuring consistent quality, and continuously improving to give your students the best education possible.
