In July 2014, AdvancED approved Chicago Virtual Charter School as meeting the AdvancED standards for quality schools. AdvancED is dedicated to advancing excellence in education worldwide through accreditation, research, and professional services. As the world's largest education community, AdvancED engages more than 27,000 public and private schools and districts across the United States and in 65 countries worldwide—educating more than 15 million students in all.
Accreditation provides reciprocity of credits, courses, and grade level placements between schools and universities around the world; it also validates the equivalency of diplomas and certificates to other accredited schools and universities. Furthermore, accreditation ensures a consistent level of quality in a network of participating schools that is valued by the public and by colleges and universities. The AdvancED accreditation process validates a school's quality through onsite reviews conducted by trained, professional evaluators.
AdvancED certification recognizes that Chicago Virtual Charter School has demonstrated to the international academic community that it effectively advances the quality of the educational experiences it provides to its students, and is in compliance with the standards of the organization.
