Accreditation by Cognia

We are incredibly excited to announce that River Gate High School is officially accredited by Cognia—the largest community of education professionals in the world! On February 21, 2017, Cognia announced that River Gate has joined its list of more than 32,000 institutions across the U.S. and around the world that it rigorously evaluated and now recognizes as providing a quality education.

Accreditation is an achievement that offers assurance that a River Gate High School education is sound and nationally recognized. River Gate High School’s new accreditation status provides all students graduating from River Gate High School a fully accredited high school diploma, and every student will benefit through assurance of:

  • QUALIFIED TEACHERS who are continually improving their teaching methods
  • EVEN GREATER FOCUS on student learning
  • BETTER TRANSITIONS from grade to grade
  • CURRICULUM that is rigorous, diverse, sound, and based on strict quality standards
  • A BROAD SELECTION of student activities and support services
  • SMOOTHER TRANSFER of credits from school to school
  • ELIGIBILITY for special programs, grants, and scholarships

Cognia is the national commission that confers the accreditation seal and is nationally and internationally recognized as an authority in education, and is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. Cognia has awarded only ONE corporation accreditation in Ohio—to Cambridge Education Group—making an education at one of its schools—like River Gate High School—all the more unique.

Our accreditation status lasts for a five-year term with regular monitoring of progress and reporting on the system-wide high quality standards, continuous improvement, and quality assurance mandated by accreditation. After five years, our accreditation will be renewed.

We are very proud of our school’s accomplishments that contributed to achieving accreditation. And this could not have happened without you and your continuous support.
