Our institution offers a highly diversified educational base that encompasses but is not limited to topics in: psychology, sociology, philosophy, reason & logic, education, business management, organizational behavior, biology, chemistry, counseling, mathematics, theology, history, music and others.
Our school uses the most advanced pedagogical methodology and is accredited in Cognitive Mentoring by the International Association of Cognitive Mentoring Therapists (I.A.C.M.T.). “Cognitive Thinking” is the highest degree of human thinking possible and, therefore, reflects the highest degree of educational engagement and benefit that can be had. Study at our school involves a heavy emphasis on essay writing, research, reasoning and interaction with qualified expert professors in every class. Our courses are recognized by the educational field as cognitive and beneficial for people of all levels of education.
Because our studies are designed to be engaged at the college and graduate level, our students pass cognitive examinations by screening professors. This process ensures that our students are able to handle advanced college level coursework with the emphasis being on cognitive thinking proclivities that are not prevalent in the majority of college bound graduates nor salient in society. Our students have been personally evaluated and are under the direct training, supervision and mentoring of our professors who have all authored university level texts and are well sought after educators worldwide.
Our course load is equivalent to graduate level in content and delivery. Each student works within a group of student peers and an assigned faculty member. The student explores the coursework and prepares projects while in lecture hall and in their study groups both on and off campus (or at home via conference calls and chat rooms online).
Our courses prepare students for mastery in leadership skills using our exclusive methodologies in psychotherapy and education, thus qualifying the student for the following positions / careers: Life Coach, Supervisory positions, Management, Organizational Cognitive Specialist, Industrial Productivity Specialist, Counselor, Cognitive Mentor Therapist, Industrial Cognitive Therapist, Ministerial Credentialing as Religious Teachers – Missionaries – Evangelists and Pastors, Mental Health Counselors – recognized in New York State among others, Spiritual Counselor, Pastoral Counselor and many others too numerous to detail here.
Accreditation in the USA is purely a voluntary process. Accreditation is recognition of a school by an organization set up to establish guidelines for colleges, schools, and seminaries. Accreditation is not required in the USA. Accreditation is not a function of the United States government. There are government recognized accrediting agencies (associated with the U.S. Department of Education – D.O.E.), and hundreds of private (non-recognized, independent, unrecognized) accrediting agencies, associations, commissions, councils, and unions which are not associated in any manner with the U.S. Department of Education (D.O.E.).
What most people do not know about accreditation.
In addition, the accreditation process takes a long time because the institution by law must operate without accreditation for a number of years producing graduating classes in order to initiate the process. Therefore, accreditation does not verify quality or standards as this is negated for the first aggregate years of an institution’s existence.
More to our case is that the regional accrediting bodies can only accredit that which is traditional. Any new cutting edge methodology and curriculum cannot be accredited in many cases for the first few decades until the institution has sufficiently educated many students and the public is aware of the methodology and its application. So that, in essence, society must accept new methodologies from unaccredited schools before they can become mainstream – thusly, accepted for accreditation. The other issue with this is that without experts of the methodology within the employ of the accrediting body, how can they evaluate the program or course of study? Educational bodies are always adding on new courses and methods that are not accredited.
In our particular case, cognitive mentoring cannot be regionally accredited because regional accrediting bodies have no way to evaluate it. Cognitive mentoring is the latest educational / psychological advance being researched today. It is the only method of transferring cognitive thinking recognized by educational and psychological researchers. Most or all of our courses use the andragogical cognitive mentor method developed by our founder exclusively.
Many religious schools choose not to be accredited at all. The majority of religious schools (Bible Colleges, Bible Institutes, Religious Training Schools, and Theological Seminaries) do not accept, nor seek government endorsement (accreditation) at any level in order to maintain their separation of church and state.
The only real reason schools seek accreditation is in order to accept tuition by way of Federal Student Loans. With the high number of non-scholarship students qualifying for such tuition aid most schools could not compete nor survive without accepting government guaranteed payment.
Many schools, such as ours, are accredited by private (independent) accrediting agencies, associations, commissions, councils and unions (which are not part of any national, state, county, or city government) in order to maintain a strict separation of church and state policy. These private (independent) agencies are not recognized, nor endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE).
Credits earned by students through non-accredited religious schools are widely accepted by Faith-based Universities, Bible Colleges, Theological Schools and Seminaries, Mission Boards, and employers as college-level work. Studies completed were recognized by the Maryland Board of Education as legitimate college level studies, and in 2004 by one of the state of Florida’s largest University affiliated hospitals among numerous others.
