Regional Accreditation Status

Mt. Scott Learning Center is regionally accredited by AdvancEd. It is one of more than 1,800 schools in the region to maintain regional accreditation. Mt. Scott was first accredited with the Association in 2003 and must apply annually for accreditation status.

Accredited schools are members of the nation's six regional accrediting associations. Being accredited implies that the school subscribes to a process of voluntary self-regulation that is a constructive experience designated to improve the quality of the member school.

Accreditation is a means of showing confidence in a school's performance. When AdvancEd accredits a school, it is certifying that the school has annually met prescribed quantitative and qualitative standards, within the terms of the school's own stated mission and beliefs. It is also certifying that the school has undergone a self-study and validation by an outside team of peers.

By being accredited, Mt. Scott Learning Center is assured that other regionally accredited schools will recognize their students' credits, transcripts and diplomas.
