Who is Cognia?

Cognia is one of the largest communities of education professionals in the world. The organization provides accreditation services to over 32,000 institutions serving over 20 million students worldwide. Cognia is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. While their expertise is grounded in more than a hundred years of work in school accreditation, Cognia is far from a typical accrediting agency. Their goal is not to certify that schools are good enough. Rather, their commitment is to help schools continuously improve.
