Educational Accreditation is a status which shows the community that a school has met and is maintaining a high level of educational standards set by an accrediting agency. By accrediting an institution, the competency, credibility, and authority of the institution is certified.
The American Baccalaureate School is accredited by the Kuwait Ministry of Education and Cognia (formerly AdvancED)/North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI), the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI), and the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC).
Our accrediting agency, Cognia, is a global network of educators that reviews and addresses the unique requirements for the following kinds of educational institutions: public and private schools; STEM schools; education corporations; and early learning, post-secondary, special purpose, and digital learning institutions.
In our most recent review period, the Cognia Review Team (AER) met 85 of our school stakeholders: students, teachers, staff, parents and members of the community. The feedback was highly positive about the commitment and enthusiasm of ABS. The team reviewed evidence that our school is meeting the following goals we set for online learning:
- To increase student learning and improve classroom instruction using digital tools.
- To prepare ABS students for the 21st Century with remote learning.
- To improve digital engagement and communications with all stakeholders.
- To improve ABS processes for data collection and analysis in a digital environment.
