POMPANO BEACH, Florida., January 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Smart Horizons Career Online Education has been named the 2021 Cognia™ School of Distinction for Excellence in Education. Cognia, the global nonprofit school improvement organization, has recognized 59 schools and 20 systems around the world as Schools of Distinction.
Smart Horizons Career Online Education is part of Cognia’s inaugural Schools of Distinction program which recognizes pre-K-12 educational institutions that exemplify excellence in education and service to learners. Cognia has selected Smart Horizons Career Online Education as one of 59 schools and 20 systems out of more than 1,200 eligible institutions for its 2021 Cognia Schools of Distinction.
“We are honored to be recognized as a Cognia School System of Distinction,” said Dr. Howard Liebmann, Superintendent of Schools for Smart Horizons Careers Online Education. “It certainly validates our work and continued success in reintegrating adults into the education system.”
Smart Horizons Career Online Education Won First Cognia Accreditation in 2011 and reaccreditation in 2016 and 2021. Smart Horizons Career Online Education participated in Cognia’s rigorous accreditation commitment review process, which is based on research-based performance standards. The process includes a review by education experts of the evidence, interviews and classroom observations. The assessment covers leadership capacity, learning capacity and resource capacity, as well as a demonstrated commitment to continuous improvement.
“Smart Horizons Career Online Education is to be commended for its award as a School of Distinction,” said Dr. Mark A. Elgart, President and CEO of Cognia. “Cognia accreditation is already a mark of distinction recognized around the world. Being named a School or District of Distinction further recognizes the commitment to educational excellence that Smart Horizons Career Online Education has for its learners,” he added.
For member institutions of the Cognia Global Network, Cognia offers the opportunity to be further recognized as a school or system of distinction in the year in which an accreditation mission review takes place. Unlike the typical five-year accreditation cycle, this new program recognizes institutions that have conducted a Cognia Accreditation Commitment Examination during the recognition year.
