It is with the greatest excitement that I can proudly announce a milestone in our Community and State! We have now officially become the ONLY American Accredited school in Chiapas by COGNIA, the largest accreditation body in the World, joining a network of over 36,000 institutions across 85 countries! This has been a long process of perfecting our best practices throughout these 30 years of experience that allowed the quality of our curriculum and learning community to shine at the highest levels of World Class Education! The evaluation process began in September of 2020 and culminated with a 3 day virtual visit in May 2021, when a team of qualified professional educators evaluated our school in 3 main domains, Leadership, Learning and Resources, to comply with international standards.
Students graduating from ASFC will now be able to guarantee through COGNIA that their preparation will place them at par with top International Schools in the World and that ASFC’s continuous improvement will be accompanied by passionate educators from around the world. We now share both an IB accreditation for our curriculum and a schoolwide COGNIA accreditation for all educational and operational growth. We are now eligible to join ASOMEX alongside American School Foundation (Mexico City), American School Foundation Monterrey, American School Foundation of Guadalajara, Instituto San Roberto and more institutions holding this American accreditation, some of which have been operating for more than 100 years.
Please join us in celebrating this breakthrough which helps us expand once again our network with national and international global learning communities.
Thank you to all community members that participated during our evaluation processes this year! It is of the utmost importance that we remain evaluated by a third party that can ensure the sustainability of our quality student learning experience for many years to come, widening opportunities for worldwide success to our student body!
