Cognia (formerly AdvanceED) Accreditation – Exemplary Status
Saint Bridget School is Cognia accredited and the Diocese of Richmond is Cognia accredited as a school system.
Cognia is the largest community of education professionals in the world. They are a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K through grade 12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. While their expertise is grounded in more than a hundred years of work in school accreditation, Cognia is far from a typical accrediting agency. Their goal isn’t to certify that schools are good enough. Rather, their commitment is to help schools improve.
Combining the knowledge and expertise of a research institute, the skills of a management consulting firm, and the passion of a grassroots movement for educational change, Cognia serves as a trusted partner to 34,000 schools and school systems–employing more than four million educators and enrolling more than 20 million students–across the United States and 70 other nations.
