Aligning Our Mission to Yours

catholic-schools-HS hero

Committed to serving Catholic schools for over 100 years

Supporting your mission

Catholic schools are called to pass on the Catholic faith and be witnesses to the message of Christ. This mission and vision encompass thoughts, actions, and decisions made by every stakeholder in the Catholic school community. Cognia accreditation supports this philosophy by applying our rigorous performance standards to the context of Catholic schools.

Cognia accreditation is supported with unparalleled expertise, resources, and diagnostic tools. Schools use these tools to measure effectiveness and improve upon school quality in areas such as leadership, learning, and resource capacities.

Insight into your stakeholder's mindset

Catholic schools rely on Cognia to shed light onto key stakeholder perceptions—from parents to teachers to students. School leaders leverage data from a variety of surveys, including our proprietary Catholic Identity Program Effectiveness and Culture & Climate surveys to steer positive change in their schools. Many of our Catholic school members also customize and deploy surveys to meet their unique needs.
