Accreditation

Oak Meadow is accredited through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools/Council of Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS/CASI). Through this accreditation, Oak Meadow is recognized by the several other regional accrediting agencies:

  • North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement
  • Western Association of Schools and Colleges
  • Northwest Association of Accredited Schools
  • Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools

In addition, Oak Meadow has recently been accepted as a candidate for New England Association for Schools and Colleges¬†accreditation, the first distance-learning school ever to receive such recognition in NEASC’s prestigious¬†130-year history.

These agencies typically honor credits granted by one another. While Oak Meadow cannot guarantee that an individual school or school district will accept our credits, our transcripts carry the seal of our accrediting organizations and have been widely accepted by schools and universities around the world. Oak Meadow also is an Approved Independent School in the state of Vermont.

What does accreditation mean?
Why is accreditation important?
Enrolling in Oak Meadow is equivalent to enrolling in a private school; therefore, you may not need to file an “intent to homeschool” or participate in testing in order to meet your state’s homeschooling requirements. Check with your state and local Education Department for information about your state’s requirements.

Oak Meadow cannot guarantee that other schools will accept our credits; however, accredited schools do routinely accept the credits provided by one another. Accreditation is especially important when considering high school graduation and college admissions.
