SVHS sells courses to students directly and provides its Online Curriculum to schools looking to quickly leap into the digital age by blending teacher-led classroom sessions with online study at home. Schools who adopt our curriculum often act as the school of record.

Accreditation

SVHS accredited by both WASC and Cognia.

Silicon Valley High School was accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) with code 44 75432 417.

Cognia is the largest community of education professionals in the world. Cognia is the trusted partner to 34,000 educational institutions—employing more than four million educators and enrolling more than 20 million students—across the United States and 70 other nations.

AdvancED (now Cognia), was established in 2006 when the Board of Directors of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI) and the Board of Trustees of the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) made a unanimous decision to unify their respective organizations. The National Study of School Evaluation (NSSE) also joined the unification. In 2012, the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) joined AdvancED as the third accreditation division.

SVHS courses are approved by organizations such as the NCAA, Quality Matters and University of California (UC A-G)
