Frequently asked questions

Does EDIA currently have accreditation?  

Yes! Early on we saw the importance of obtaining accreditation and became members with Cognia. This is because we take working towards continuous improvement seriously and being able to provide the best quality of instruction and services we can for the students we serve. In three years of operation, our team was able to successfully gather the data needed in order to analyze progress, procedures and systems at EDIA for self-assessment. We submitted documentation needed in order to share information about our school's improvement plans and identified efforts to meet compliances for quality assurance. This enabled us to complete the appropriate evaluations, training and processes needed in order to gain accreditation with Cognia. As a result, we were recommended and then approved for full K-12 accreditation.

How does EDIA plan to maintain accreditation? 

We have been assigned Cognia representatives which work with us to shape the improvement of our instruction and educational offerings alongside our accreditation and quality assurance advisor, Dr. Tahira Hoke. Dr. Hoke is an esteemed professor of educational psychology at Prince Sultan University with more than 18 years of experience in Higher education and works as a direct aid to the president of PSU. She has assisted in accreditation and quality assurance at the University level and is partnering with EDIA to help us meet and maintain continued accreditation goals.
