Is SBCA accredited and what does it mean to be accredited?

Accreditation is a process of validation in which institutions of learning are evaluated. Accreditation is a lengthy, involved, and voluntary process, one that continues past the actual receipt of the designation, as schools constantly seek ways to improve and to act upon the recommendations of the accreditation team. The accreditation process consists of three distinct, yet overlapping parts: demonstrated compliance with a set of  research-based standards, a thorough self-study that leads to institutional goals for deeper fulfillment of the mission, and a peer review to ascertain the level of commitment to mission and to provide feedback and guiding questions for the school. SBCA is accredited with AdvancED, NCPSA, and ACTS.
