Cognia Accreditation

Golden Pond School has once again been awarded accreditation by Cognia. GPS has exceeded the qualifications of the nationally recognized accreditation since 2015 by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI), a division of Cognia. Cognia offers accreditation and certification, assessment, professional learning, and improvement solutions to institutions and other education providers. This is an indication to parents that we have met the high standards and made a commitment to implement a continuous process of school improvement focused on increasing student performance. It reflects that teaching the Golden Pond Way provides children with the ultimate quality education.

School leaders have adopted a mission to use brain-based instructional methods to educate the whole child in a developmentally appropriate and nurturing environment. That mission is carried out passionately and with fidelity by all staff members in a classroom. The school’s children are highly engaged in a theme-based instructional process that allows them to connect prior knowledge to new learning.” Cognia Review
