Understanding Accreditation

Accreditation is a very important element of your education. However, many do not understand the basics of the accreditation process. Before choosing a school, it is important that you have a clear picture of exactly who accredits the school and what that accreditation means for your future. Without accreditation, you could find yourself with a degree that employers may not respect. 

Most define accreditation as a status which shows the public that a school has met and is maintaining a high level of standards set by an accrediting agency. Generally, the accreditor for California-based colleges will not provide accreditation for new colleges until after the first classes of students graduate.

To be clear, we are not accredited. Yet, that begins rather than ends our conversation.

We are working to ensure our program is academically robust to meet and exceed the requirements of existing accrediting bodies whether ACICS (Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools) or WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges).  To this end, we will recruit well-trained and experienced faculty and acquire required facilities which should enable accreditation. 

We trust this collaboration and our unique experiential learning projects will reflect our predicate that talent is universal. We are providing an opportunity and potentially a bridge to top schools.
