eTUTOR VIRTUAL LEARNING EARNS CONTINUING NCA-CASI ACCREDITATION
Boulder, CO – July 30, 2012– Dr. Martha Angulo, President of Knowledge Headquarters, Inc. parent organization, announced today that eTutor Virtual Learning earned continuing accreditation from the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI), an accreditation division of AdvancED. eTutor Virtual Learning has been accredited since 2002.
NCA CASI provides nationally-recognized accreditation, the purpose of which is continuous school improvement focused on increasing student performance.

Accreditation is granted on a five-year term,
“Accreditation demonstrates to our students, parents, and online community that we are focused on raising student achievement, providing a safe and enriching learning environment, and maintaining an efficient and effective operation staffed by highly qualified educators,” stated Dr. Angulo.
NCA CASI accreditation is recognized across state lines, which not only eases the transfer process as students move from accredited school to accredited school but also assures parents that the school is meeting nationally accepted standards for quality and successful professional practice.
Dr. Mark Elgart, President/CEO of AdvancED, the parent organization of NCA CASI, stated, “NCA CASI Accreditation is a rigorous process that focuses the entire school on the primary goal of creating lifelong learners. eTutor Virtual Learning is to be commended for engaging in this process and demonstrating a commitment to continuous improvement.”
