Roanoke Catholic is Cognia accredited and the Diocese of Richmond is Cognia accredited as a school system. Cognia (formerly AdvancEd) is the largest community of education professionals in the world. It is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. While its expertise is grounded in more than 100 years of work in school accreditation, Cognia is far from a typical accrediting agency. Its goal isn’t to certify that schools are good enough. Rather, its commitment is to help schools improve. Combining the knowledge and expertise of a research institute, the skills of a management consulting firm and the passion of a grassroots movement for educational change, Cognia serves as a trusted partner to 34,000 schools and school systems, employing more than 4 million educators and enrolling more than 20 million students across the United States and 70 other nations.
