Accreditation




3 TENETS: RIGOR | ACCOUNTABILITY | CHARACTER
 
Accreditation is a way of fostering the standardization of a program or process. As a help, we will gladly supply information for anyone wanting to attain accreditation for their homeschooled student for the streamlining of college entrance. The importance in the concept of this deliberate order is sometimes understated, but most would agree it would be a mistake to ignore it. The very word of God teaches us the importance of standards. At the True North School, our educational ideals are set high and are guided by three main tenets: rigor, accountability,and character. For more on this, visit here at Our Guiding Tenets link. For reasons of maintaining ultimate flexibility along with far-reaching excellence, the structure of our program is intentionally not accredited. This is certainly not to be confused with not having high standards. Contrarily, the lesson plans, curriculums and instruction, applied as recommended, are all designed and managed to meet high accreditation standards. We simply choose to control our own destiny when it comes to our criterion setting. We do not wish to be forced or relegated to a cookie-cutter system of standards but maintain our own rigorous, substantiated code. Our position is that the adherence to these details clearly works to the benefit of our families. We welcome you to visit and to dialog with us about this unquestionably important difference and how it pertains to strong, uncluttered education
 

GOAL: COLLEGE AND LEADERSHIP
 
Homeschooling parents' accreditation choices are varied and their reasonings for such choices are just as faceted. Upon examination, what is found is that the variances in the means of obtaining accreditation--or the reason not to obtain accreditation for that matter--astonishingly, frequently lead to the same outcome--college entrance, if that is the desire. Since many students, without going through accreditation, gain entrance into many institutions of higher learning, the differences in method can, arguably, be looked upon mundanely as a means of keeping a student's academic records. This is particularly manifest if the learning standards adhered to are as high or higher than those of many accredited programs. As homeschoolers, one thing we can certainly agree upon is that there is no definitive on right or wrong in this regard.to seek accreditation, or not. That said, accreditation is important to many homeschoolers mainly for its recordkeeping functions. Having a diploma eases the process of applying for and obtaining entrance into college. Our classes and instruction satisfy the major applicable accreditation standards. Parents are free to choose which accreditation program they would like to use. As a help, we will gladly supply information for anyone wanting to attain accreditation for their student for the streamlining of college entrance.
