A few months ago, Williamsburg Learning went through a national accreditation recertification with the help of our team, parents, and students. We recently received our final report from that visit and were thrilled to find that we scored 377 out of a possible 400 points! To put that into perspective, the average online school scores around 278 points. Here is some of the feedback we received from the very highly qualified visiting accreditation team:

“Interviews revealed parents, students, teachers, and administrators consider the quality of relationships among stakeholders as a strength that impacts the student experience.”

“The corporation has a strong family culture based on productive and positive relationships with all stakeholders.”

“Interviews revealed that staff listens to the concerns of stakeholders and implements many of their suggestions. As one parent indicated, ‘They really listen to parent concerns.’” 

“Williamsburg Learning showed me what online education can truly be…I think I had a TLE this week!”

We are honored to serve you and are grateful to be a part of your educational journey!

Warmly,

Anya Yeager

Executive Director, Williamsburg Academy
