GIA’s (Gemological Institute of America) Carlsbad campus received the 2017 School of Excellence Award from the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC). GIA is among an elite group of only 15 post-secondary ACCSC-accredited institutions to receive the award this year. This recognition includes a six-year grant of accreditation; an honour reserved for ACCSC’s highest performing institutions. The Carlsbad campus was first named a School of Excellence in 2012; GIA’s New York campus was similarly recognized in 2014.

“We are honored to again be recognized by ACCSC as a School of Excellence,” said Bev Hori, GIA senior vice president and chief learning officer. “This accreditation is so important to our work in preparing the next generation of gem and jewelry professionals.”

“ACCSC is incredibly proud of the work being done by our accredited member institutions to ensure that students not only have a high-quality education, but graduate with the critical skills they need in order to enter and advance in their chosen occupational field,” said Dr. Michale McComis, ACCSC’s Executive Director.

The School of Excellence Award recognizes ACCSC-accredited institutions for their consistent commitment to the expectations and rigors of the accreditation process, as well as a commitment to delivering high-quality educational programs and services to students and graduates. ACCSC conducted a comprehensive assessment of GIA’s educational programs, student services, and required that GIA’s graduate employment records be independently verified by a qualified third-party.

ACCSC accredits GIA’s on-campus courses and programs in Carlsbad and New York. The award was announced at ACCSC’s 50th anniversary Professional Development Conference held Sept. 25 – 27 in Reston, VA.
