Class.com’s Online School Awarded Advanc-ED Accreditation
Lincoln, NE (July 19, 2011) – Lincoln National Academy, Class.com’s online high school, was awarded accreditation from the Advanc-ED/North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA-CASI) at the Advand-ED Accreditation Committee meeting in last month.
NCA-CASI provides nationally recognized accreditation, the purpose of which is continuous school improvement focused on increasing student performance. To earn accreditation schools must meet NCA CASI’s high standards, be evaluated by a team of professionals from outside the school, and implement a continuous process of school improvement.
“We are excited and honored by the decision,” said LNA School Director Lisa Bourlier. “This truly validates the high-quality education we provide at LNA. We can’t wait to continue expanding our school to more students.”
NCA-CASI accreditation is recognized across state lines, which not only eases the transfer process as students move from accredited school to accredited school but also assures parents that the school is meeting nationally accepted standards for quality and successful professional practice.
