Accreditation

Council on Accreditation logoReceiving accreditation verifies that our programs meet the highest level of standards and are committed to delivering the highest level of services to our students and families.

Council on Accreditation (COA) After School Standards represent a merging with National Afterschool Association (NAA) standards, which are based on generally-accepted elements of best-practice, outcome-oriented, effective in advancing quality, and responsive to the unique, diverse needs of after school programs.

We are pleased to announce that all of our B.A.S.E. programs  have been recognized, with distinction, as accredited by the Council on Accreditation.

Several of our programs were expedited through the Pre-Commission Review Report (PCR) process as a result of being compliant in all of the fundamental practice or core standards.

We encourage you to read more about COA Accreditation.
