Davidson Academy Online is accredited by AdvancED, which recently merged with Measured Progress to form Cognia. The Academy has constantly been recognized for promoting and maintaining a well-balanced education program and for meeting or exceeding standards considered essential for quality education.

“Accreditation adds another layer of credibility to Davidson Academy Online and allows our graduates to know that their diploma will be nationally recognized. Our accreditation validates the efforts of our teachers and curriculum experts who have designed our courses from the ground up and shows our commitment to continually improving an already outstanding program,” said Dr. Stacy Hawthorne, director of Davidson Academy Online.

Additionally, all Davidson Academy Online courses are approved for A-G credit from the UC system.

Ongoing accreditation is a testament to Davidson Academy Online’s mission to provide profoundly gifted young people an advanced educational opportunity matched to their abilities, strengths, and interests.
