About Our School
Utah Virtual Academy (UTVA) is accredited by Cognia in recognition of the high-quality education our school provides to students. Cognia is the largest community of education professionals in the world.
As a non-profit, non-partisan organization, Cognia conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of preK–12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. Cognia serves as a trusted partner to 36,000 schools and school systems—employing more than five million educators and enrolling more than 25 million students—across the United States and 80 other nations. Cognia was created through a 2006 merger of the preK–12 divisions of the North Central Association (NCA) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), and it expanded through the 2011 acquisition of the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC).
