FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - The Accrediting Commission for Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC) recently recognized CollegeAmerica Flagstaff with the "2008-2009 School of Distinction" award at the annual Professional Development Conference held in September in San Diego, Calif.
This award is presented to member institutions that have demonstrated a commitment to delivering quality educational programs to the students, graduates and employers. This significant achievement honors a school's commitment to the expectations and rigors of ACCSC accreditation, including completing the accreditation process without stipulation.
