Edgewood Academy & Academic Excellence
Edgewood is about education, it is about competing in sports, but most of all it is about families working together to provide the best learning experience for their children. Edgewood Academy has been accredited by the Alabama Independent School Association (AISA) since 1974. Edgewood is also accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS, the National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA) and the Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation Alliance (CITA). This means that our graduates are recognized by colleges as a quality prospect for their school. Our students score well above the national average on the Stanford Achievement Test and ninety-nine percent of Edgewood graduates go on to higher education.
All of this has helped contribute to Edgewood being named an AISA Blue Ribbon School for over a decade. This distinction is given to schools exemplifying excellence in teaching, student performance, school life, and school and community interaction. Blue ribbon schools also are involved in an on-going process of school improvement.
