School accreditation is a critical process of reflection upon the practices of a school. An external body examines the school to ensure standards (set by the accrediting body) are met. In many countries around the world accreditation is handled by a government entity, however in the USA, accreditation is managed by several non-profit organizations organized by region. Each accreditation process is unique to the commission that it is affiliated with.
Why is School Accreditation Important?
Accreditation ensures that a school is operating with educational quality. This recognition also enables a smooth transition for students seeking educational opportunities after their time at Fusion.
When a school is accredited, it shows students and their families they can trust the education the school provides has been measured and meets quality standards.
Who does the Accrediting?
Fusion is nationally accredited by Cognia (formerly AdvancED), which includes NCA CASI (North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement), SACS CASI (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement), and NWAC (Northwest Accreditation Commission).
Regionally, Fusion campuses are accredited by NEASC (New England Association of Schools and Colleges), MSA (Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools), and WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges).
