LifeWorks Schools are licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and an approved provider through the New York, New Jersey and Delaware departments of education. Our strong academic program is aligned with the Pennsylvania Department of Education Core Curriculum Content Standards.
All LifeWorks Schools are individually licensed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Department of Education via the Nonpublic/Private Schools division’s State Board of Private Academic Schools.
Cognia (formerly known as AdvancED) is the largest community of education professionals in the world. They are a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site reviews of a variety of educational institutions and systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. Their goal isn’t to certify that educational institutions are good enough. Rather, their commitment is to help these institutions continuously 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 36,000 educational institutions—employing more than four million educators and enrolling more than 20 million students—across the United States and 70 other nations.
Cognia was formed through a 2006 merger of the Pre-K-12 divisions of the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI)—and expanded through the addition of the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) in 2012.
In June 2016, Foundations Behavioral Health and the LifeWorks System completed its accreditation through Cognia with an outcome of a full five year accreditation recommendation. Additionally, each of our four LifeWorks Schools completed school accreditation through Cognia with the outcome of a full five year accreditation recommendation.
