In March of 2021 the Alabama School of Math and Science earned Cognia Accreditation. Cognia provides nationally recognized accreditation, which is focused on continuous school improvement and increasing student performance. ASMS had to demonstrate our performance in 30 Accreditation Standards within separate Cognia frameworks. The evaluation teams reviewed more than 150 pages of longitudinal data, survey results, projects, programs, plans, anecdotes, photos, and videos, in addition to interviewing ASMS school community members. ASMS completed the process with a high rating on the educational quality index. Accreditation is granted for a five years.
