Our Accreditation

Escambia Academy is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI), an accrediting division of Cognia, formerly AdvancED.

This ethic of excellence ensures that institutions will find rich benefits from accreditation and that parents can confidently make informed decisions about their children’s education, knowing their child’s school is accredited. Accreditation matters

because our students deserve the highest level of educational excellence possible. Educational institutions that engage in SACS accreditation will:

  • Unite with a global network committed to standards of educational excellence.

  • Earn the distinction of quality through the recognized seal of SACS accreditation.

  • Experience a unified, clear, and powerful accreditation process with a scalable and sustainable evaluation of education quality.
