Q. Are you an accredited school?
A. Alderwood Academy is registered as a private school with the State of Florida. Florida does not require or provide a certification process for private schools. Upon completion of the State's high school academic requirement, Alderwood Academy’s graduates receive a high school diploma . As with all schools, public or private, the acceptance of diplomas is subject to the requirements of the receiving institution or employer.
Since Alderwood Academy does not supply or demand a specific curriculum it would be counterproductive and costly to go through an accreditation process that reviews the school's curriculum.
